Default Broncos have questions to answer on Denver offensive line before playoffs (Kuper & Clady)

Q: What is the status of guard Chris Kuper for the playoffs?

Read more: Broncos have questions to answer on Denver offensive line before playoffs?

Paul, if the Broncos have a question mark looming over them in the playoffs, this is it. They ended their playoff bye week with two starters in the offensive line Kuper and left tackle Ryan Clady dealing with injuries. The Broncos are optimistic both will play in their playoff opener Saturday, but if one or the other or both are not full speed it will be plainly evident once they face opposing pass rushers.Overall, the Broncos surrendered 19 of their 21 sacks on Manning this season in games Kuper did not play on offense.

Clady's status bears watching as well. He was not on the field during the open periods of practice this past week with an undisclosed issue. Broncos coach John Fox said Clady did later come out each day to view practice, but in the end Clady did not participate in drills.His injury has been described as a "nagging" item and that he was simply being rested. Clady did have major knee surgery before the 2010 season and dealt with some hamstring issues earlier this season that limited him some in practice. He has not missed a game in his career, however, and privately the Broncos don't believe he'll miss Saturday's game. But in a pass-first offense if the left tackle sneezes, the quarterback catches pneumonia.



For the rest

This Clady "injury" is more about Legwold making a mountain out of a molehill than it is about anything serious, IMO. Read the whole article, he states that insiders say Clady & Kuper will start, and Clady's injury is the nagging type and they were just cautious with him this week.

I saw that Kuper got work in last week in the second half to get him some playing time under his belt. They will be fine.

Legwold is not worth reading any more.

Ramirez had his two best games of his career Week 16/17 and is finally starting to play up to standards.

I have feeling both will play on Saturday, both were held out as precautionary measures.

He's playing above standards. He's not Kupe level, but he looks like a starter.

Rameriz would have made the ProBowl if he started for kFc, He would have been their best OL and the 3rd best ProBowlist (is that a word?) on their roster behind Colquitt and Charles.

I think Manny is a better run blocker than pass blocker and would love to have Kuper back.

One has to wonder being off as long as Kupe has been what kind of shape he wil
Be in. Yes I know their is in shape but this is special playoff level football shape he needs to be in.

I much rather have Kuper in there. Ramirez pass pro is below average. Usually when Manning gets pressured or gets sacked it's because Ramirez got beat.

With how the Ravens pass rush looked against Indy, at minimum we will need Clady.

I must have missed where the article said Clady is without a doubt not playing. And to be honest, I expected the Ravens to do well yesterday. I expect the 2nd Denver-Balt game to go the same way as the first.

Well to be fair....Kuper only played in 27% of those snaps.

So, not a lot to read into. Just saying...

Rub some Kuper Glue on it. It's more effective than unicorn jizz.
