No, but he would not have practiced today. He DNP on the injury report today. Matt Willis was DNP too.

He'll probably miss the Raider game (Woodyard)...

EDIT

It's just an Ankle Sprain and Fox said he shouldn't be out too long.

No, it's usually not reported what injuries happen if they come back in and they aren't listed on the Injury Report that week.

But from what it looked like, he was just gassed and out of wind. He said the weight gain would hurt his stamina this season...

He was stretched pretty good on that play. Ended up on his knees and then bent all the way backwards to the ground. It looked pretty painful to be honest.

Just because a player goes out for a play, doesn't mean they were injured. Hurt on the play, yes, but something can hurt for a few minutes but doesn't mean you are injured. Ever stub your big toe or smack your finger or bang knee caps with somebody. Hurts like heck for a few minutes but you're not injured. He cam back into the game and played well after that. That should tell you he wasn't hurt. No need for panic, just relax.

Yeah this happens all the time, and there's been much worse. This happens to Dumervil on almost every play.

Probably fatigued gassed...cramps... if you've participated in sports before you'd know how this feels and why he's being stretched.

Looking at the box score DT had three solo tackles dumb ass had two assisted tackles.

Doug Martin gashed us on a few plays... It would be interesting to see who's at fault on those longer runs. However, just because a player is invisible does not mean they aren't doing their job. I mean, now that you mention it, I really didn't see a whole lot of Champ either.

A few years ago Champ had an injury and was on crutches. I remember after that game Vic Lombardi MC'd Champs benefit "Gala" and later said that judging by how he walked at that event there was no way he played. Champ ended up playing and playing pretty well.

The Broncos always put their players on crutches and/or in boots when they sprain an ankle. By taking weight off and then later isolating the ankle they think it helps healing occur faster.

So while its never good to hear a guy is on crutches, don't get too worried either. The thing that worries me the most is its a short week. But at least we have DJ who can come in and be the 11th man on the field. Sure he will just run into the backs of the DL and not really do much but he will ensure they get all 11 players out there!

No ****? Thanks for clearing that up! I've NEVER played football, stubbed my big toe, OR known the difference between being hurt and injured!

Whenever a superstar goes down, then comes out of the game, and is being looked at by the training staff, ESPECIALLY when he's our best defensive player, I'm going to be ****tin bricks.

You must've never had an injury (or been hurt) and come back in because you're tough and want to play through it, because your team needs you. Ever stubbed your toe, or banged your knee against someone else's, and it hurt like Hell (and you actually BROKE it) but you had to keep doing whatever it is you were in the middle of because it was important?

He strikes me as the type of tough man who would pay through an injury. So go **** your condescending self, I was trying to figure out if it was significant.

Nope! I think DJ is great depth. He is just not performing to his capabilities. Example last game. When Woody went down, I thought it was time for DJ to step up. Danny was the one that ended up having a bigger impact. At the end of the day, I feel more comfortable with Danny taking on the increased roll rather than DJ. He is still rusty. But you are right... we have good depth. I just thought DJ had a bad game.

Wesley Woodyard's injury could affect both defense and special teams
POSTED: 12/04/2012 12:01:00 AM MSTBy Jeff Legwold
The Denver Post

Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard sprained an ankle against the Buccaneers on Sunday. (Denver Post file)
Today's question about the Broncos comes from George W. in Miami. To submit a question for consideration, send an e-mail to The Denver Post's Jeff Legwold.

Q: How much will (Wesley) Woodyard's injury affect the Broncos on a short week?

A: George, Woodyard suffered a sprained ankle in the second half of Sunday's win over the Buccaneers and did not return to the game.

He remained on the sideline for the remainder of the win, however, but his ankle was not re-taped after the team's training staff had examined it. The Broncos face a condensed timetable this week as they will practice for the first time this week on Tuesday, have another workout Wednesday and then leave for Oakland where the Broncos play Thursday night.

Woodyard received treatment following the game. He was in the team's Dove Valley complex Monday for treatment as well. Broncos coach John Fox said Monday he wouldn't know how much Woodyard would practice until he arrived to the team's complex Tuesday.

"He has played really good football for us," Fox said. "We'll just evaluate. It's an ankle sprain. It's not anything serious as far as if it will require a lot of time. We'll see how he feels (Tuesday)."

But Woodyard's value to the team could be seen in the moves the Broncos had to make once he left the lineup Sunday.

Woodyard, since being placed into the starting lineup because of D.J. Williams' suspensions to open the season, has been one of the most active players in the defense.

The entire team did not practice Monday, but because of NFL rules, Fox had to submit an injury report. So during his conference he said "in our imaginary practice, Wesley Woodyard did not practice, Mathew Willis did not practice, Stokely was limited - figure that one out-"

It was pretty funny.

Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard was not participating at the beginning of practice Wednesday, making it appear that he will not start and might not play in Thursday's game at Oakland.
Woodyard suffered a sprained ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's 31-23 victory against Tampa Bay, and he did not return.
D.J. Williams is expected to replace Woodyard. Williams, a starter since his rookie season in 2004, missed the first nine games of the season because of two suspensions.
Broncos coach John Fox will discuss Woodyard's injury and Williams' availability after practice.

DJ was captain and play caller because he was the best LB on the team and the only LB that never left the field. This season he hasn't shown leadership or intelligence. Brooking limited athletically as he is has shown leadership and intelligence. It isn't a big surprise that once Brooking Replaced Mays that the defense hit its stride.

Used to be that's the key. It all started to go down hill with that first DUI. After they took the captain spot away he was not the same.
He has never been a Mensa candidate so it was no surprise that after a few weeks of him calling the plays in 07 that they knew he did not have it and allowed someone else to call the front seven defense. He did not hae the capacity to make a change after seeing the offensive set up if they were in the wrong D.

Great drag down tackler but hardly the run stuffer you need at MLB. His forte is WIL no other spot as a LB.

Brooking was acquired in the Preseason not the mid season and he is noted for his leadership on and off the field.

Broncos leading tackler Wesley Woodyard (sprained ankle) will not play in Thursday night's game at Oakland. The weakside starting linebacker did not participate in practice Wednesday and did not make the team flight.
Broncos coach John Fox, however, said he isn't worried because Woodyard has occupied what is one of the team's deepest positions. His backups are rookie Danny Trevathan and veteran D.J. Williams, a former starter who was suspended during the first nine games this season.Williams returned Nov. 18 against the San Diego Chargers.

Leadership and intelligence is what Brooking brings.

So let him play for 20 plays a game, instead of 40. No one is saying Brooking doesn't have value. I just don't think he should be taking 75% of the snaps at MLB. Especially since, over the last 3 games, his production has largely resembled Joe Mays production.
