Broncos defensive tackle Trevor Pryce will travel to California on Tuesday to determine the severity of the pinched nerve in his back. Pryce sat out of Denver's 7-6 loss to Jacksonville because the pain took away most of the strength in his legs. The four-time Pro Bowler, who had 8 1/2 sacks last season, underwent an MRI exam on Monday. He said he has no idea how severe the injury is, or when he'll be back. He needed an epidural shot to get through the first game against the Chiefs, but he was ineffective and finished with one tackle. He suited up because, without him, the Broncos would have had only five linemen in uniform. The Broncos have re-signed tackle Darius Holland. On Monday, they traded a conditional 2005 draft pick to Atlanta for tackle Ellis Johnson. Johnson led NFL interior linemen with eight sacks last season, but he didn't report to Falcons training camp this year, and was placed on the reserve list. A 10-year veteran with 48 career sacks, Johnson has talked about retirement over the past few years.

I say we're losing too much draft picks for a boost from last years lack-luster defense
