Default Orton ready to practice Monday

Denver quarterback Kyle Orton looks like he is on his way to starting on a short week Thursday night against the visiting New York Giants as the Broncos try to snap a four-game losing streak and stay relevant in the playoff hunt.

The team pronounced Orton ready to practice Monday as the Broncos try to rebound from a 32-3 home loss to San Diego on Sunday in which the Chargers took sole possession of first place in the AFC West. The team did not practice but put out the participation list as a league mandate because the game is three days away. Thus, it appears Orton is on schedule to play Thursday. Orton didnít practice all last week leading up to the game.

Orton didnít start the game. But he did spell backup Chris Simms in the second quarter as Denver fell behind, 13-0. Simms struggled badly. Orton gave Denver a spark and played pretty well, despite limping badly.

After the game, Denver coach Josh McDaniels said he didnít think Orton suffered a setback in the game, he was hurt Nov. 15 at Washington and he missed the second half.

While Orton is making strides toward playing Thursday, safety Brian Dawkins may be in jeopardy of not playing. He left in the first half Sunday with a neck injury and he did not return. Dawkins was not ready to practice Monday.

Denver right tackle Ryan Harris was not ready to practice with a toe injury. Harris was hurt Nov. 1 against Baltimore and hasnít played since. Denverís line play has suffered without Harris.

It's a huge relief to know that Orton isn't suffering any setbacks. This was something that concerned me yesterday when they brought him in. I still have hope given our schedule that we can make the playoffs, but without Orton, that hope is lost.

Oh he will be fine. Did you see him hop off the field on one foot? He will be fine, ...just like last year when he hurt his ankle. Oh wait, .........

I don't think Orton's got any business practicing.
The guy is an average mediocre QB, and he's going to play hurt?
Please!!!
Start Brandstater. Let's see what we've got in the kid.
To try to play in a panick mode right now as if we were SB contenders is stupid.
We've achieved a lot more than everybody thought we would.
Not saying let's throw the towel, let's get an answer we all want to know right now about our QB prospect for next year.
Let's find out by playing Brandstater the rest of the way what we've got.
Nobody here can convince me that Brandstater won't give us a better chance to win than Orton.
He brings another dimesnion to our offense. He's better cut to play with the receiver corps we've got than Orton is. That's the bottom line...

Have you ever had a toe injury, man?

That's what support most of your balance and shift weight.
It's a tougher injury than most people realize.
I've had a few of those and they hurt like hell

What "dimesnion" would that be? Just like Simms looked great in preseason... Orton is our best chance to win. If B was that good he'd have been the number 2 all along.

I've broken some toes...just wrapped em tight and kept on truckin. Obviously, I"m not an NFL lineman so I couldn't say how much it would affect me personally...but I guess I look back over the years at injuries to olinemen and they usually seem like hockey players out there compared to the rest of the positions.

I wish he'd suck it up, but obviously the long term picture is more important. Don't know how much more polumbus I can handle right now

and actually, after I just wrote my last quote, I looked up the actual injury.

Two dislocated toes on his right foot.

Ouch!

That definitely makes a little more sense than out for three weeks for "turf toe" (which I thought it was originally ).

The report I read said that initially they called it 2 dislocated toes, then changed it to just the one big one. But maybe that was misinformation, either way, had to have been nasty. What kind of an angle would it take? How would you get your shoe off?

The dimension is in his ability to get the ball to our recievers by making the throws Orton can't make.
TB also can make plays running the ball, moving out the pocket better.

Yes, I do understand he's a rookie, but let me ask you a question, why do you want Orton in there for?
To take us to the play-offs?
Superbowl?
I'm still hopeful we would make the play-offs, it's just not with Orton as our QB.

It ain't gonna happen. I still think we have a better chance to win with TB than we have with Orton any day of the week.

Let's give the kid a chance to show it, if he turns out to be not what we all hoped he would be in what I would consider a good 6 games left in the season, then we have something to work on for next year as far as QB goes.

Last year we've started with Marshall suspended for the first two games, we had a number of injuries at RB, and because of that, it allowed the team to play rookies that otherwise wouldn't ever had the chance to play.
Thanks to that, we've discovered Royal, Hillis, Clady, Spencer Larsen, etc...

So, until we play TB we won't know what we've got.
Do you also really think Orton playing injured against the Giants would still be a better choice than a healthy Brandstater?
Really, come on man!

Unless Orton is unable to walk, yes... he's a better choice than throwing a rookie into the broiler with a 6-4 record.

If we learned anything from Shanahan's handling of the Cutler situation, it's that it blew up in his face. He lost the team, and eventually his job.

You don't tell a team full of vets that you're giving up on their season so you can develop a 6th round draft choice, simply because you "don't know what you have."

Orton was the QB for this team while they compiled a 6-0 record. Apparently, he can do some things well. He's the best option we have to compete this season, and that's not going to change.

You may as well save your breath. Brandstater won't see a snap outside of a major injury to Orton.

Huh? What are you talking about? This is a wierd reinvention of history. I'm not saying that we should put Brandstater in. I'm just saying that your version of history is pretty much an imagination run wild. Shanahan didn't lose the team or his job because of that move. The team started playing better, and the offense started scoring points again.

Starting Cutler didn't cost Shanahan his job or lose the team. It bought him a few years. Neglecting defense is what cost Shanahan his job.
