    Why so many injuries?

    Does anyone in the entire NFL have as much injuries as us? Seems like every week we have a couple injuries on the field. Our team is made of fine china. Hope we can get healthy for the playoffs where we will play all good teams.

    We currently have four players who started multiple games for us last year on IR and one has come back (Walton).

    Champ essentially has been out all season....I still do not think we have seen the old Champ due to injuries.

    Von missing his six games...

    Add in key backups...people who have missed games...the quality of players missed.

    I personally would like to see anyone do the actual work that shows someone has missed more quality players then us for one reason or another.

    I quickly looked at the CBS and Profootball Ref sites that list injuries and just by looking at the Denver Broncos list critically I can tell it does not say the whole story.
    A good plan put into motion today is better than the ideal plan that is always coming sometime in the future.

    All these injuries and the Broncos are still leading the AFC at 11-2.

    Damn, this is a good team.

    We were down to our third center before peseason games, 2nd LT early in the season and half way through the season I do not think anyone on the OL was playing the spot they were suppose to before injuries started hitting us.

    Don't forget Clady. Maybe the best LT in the league.

    We need to get our secondary in better shape. Having Champ and Rogers-Cromartie healthy would be huge for a playoff run.

    Pats, Falcons are pretty banged up. It happens. Thankfully, we have guys that can cover for others/return quickly.
    Other teams aren't so lucky.

    ACL injuries will happen more until defensive players are allowed to tackle again.

    Covering a wide receiver has become the hardest job in sports.

    That said, the Packers are missing Rodgers (which is huge); the Patriots have not had Gronk for most of the year, and just lost him again, and are without Wilfork or Mayo. The 49ers were without Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, and Aldon Smith for considerable time. How about the Colts without Wayne, several running backs, and a few key defensive players?

    No team ever ends a season with the same offensive linemen they start with, so that's not unique to the Broncos.

    Every team is injured. It's football. There's no menu option to turn injuries off like in Madden.

    I think we have been pretty lucky with injuries and in good shape. Probably been luckier then most teams.

    Some, NE/Atlanta, have been ravaged with injuries
