Default Walton out for the season?

Jeff Legwold ‏@Jeff_Legwold 1m

#Broncos center J.D. Walton has had an additional surgery on his ankle this week. Is expected to miss season. A tough deal for him.

I presume Dan Koppen is at his phone now.

I am honestly surprised people are sad about this as much hate as this guy gets.

#Broncos officials still have some optimism Walton could still be back, if all goes well in healing, by late October or early November.

Well there goes some of the cap money, likely back to Koppen.

What's ol' Dan been up to? Hanging with his Patriot Pals in the Boston area.

Hopefully Kuper can get healthy as solid depth or Blake steps up to the plate

Maybe they'll give Blake a shot but I'd be surprised if they haven't rang Dan already.

Don't be surprised if #broncos bring back Dan Koppen with this Walton news, Kuper to C is something @TomNalen & I have discussed

Ramirez has been playing ahead of Blake apparently...

Blake will probably get his shot, but not when we are in an all-out "win now" mode. If Koppen can still do it, I think he would get the nod...

So we will have Ramirez, Blake and Koppen at Center. I am not worried. Plus Walton's contract will be up in the next year or two and this will weaken his position.... hey bright side guys bright side.

Manning makes the center's life easier.....I'm least worried about that spot.

Koppen came in and vastly exceeded what we saw from Walton early on. He's easily the weakest link on that o-line. Bring back Koppen or let's see what Blake can do.

i really wonder if Kuper could play Center. if he could learn it, he would be the best of who is on the roster right now.

I agree that Walton is probably our weakest link on oline... but to say that Koppen vastly exceeded him is ridiculous. Walton was a guy we could have most afforded to lose, but that's because Koppen's play might have been equal to that of Walton's. Factor in youth, and Walton was the clear choice moving forward.

I still think this is probably the position we could most afford an injury, but Walton was really starting to come on last year.

Ramirez has been practicing at center. If he's more than decent, leave him there.

Sucks for our young running backs, Koppen is a downgrade in run blocking.

I want nothing to do with Ramirez being a starter. Even if it's at center. Let Blake earn his shot, sign back Koppen and let Kuper take some rep there to see if he could really transition to that position. Myself personally, I think he could turn out to be a good C.

Manny Ramirez blocks like a bull fighter....they better have options by the time game 1 of the pre-season rolls around.
