Broncos limp through first week of camp
Question of the Day
Dumervil’s injury is the most devastating to the Broncos. Not only do they lose his ballyhooed bull-rush and playmaking ability, but his loss means several of his teammates will have to shift around and play in spots they weren’t expecting to.
Linebacker Akin Ayodele looked at the bright side: at least Dumervil went down early in camp, “and guys can get reps,” he said.
The pressure is now on every other defensive player to put pressure on the quarterback.
Of the 39 sacks the Broncos racked up last season, 35 of them were recorded by players either hurt or no longer on the team. And of those four remaining sacks, three came on blitzes by defensive backs.
The Broncos beefed up their defensive line through free agency and the centerpiece of that rebuilding project was 13-year veteran nose tackle Jamal Williams, who missed most of last season with a triceps injury.
He sat out most of the first week of practice, although McDaniels refused to say whether it was for physical or fitness reasons. By the time he finally got on the field, Dumervil was gone and the Broncos‘ defensive front seven was a mosh pit of bodies.
And their misfortune hasn’t been limited to the playing field.
Adding insult to their rash of injuries: the Broncos lost Barrett (shoulder) to the New England Patriots, who claimed him during the 24-hour waiver period before he could go on Denver’s injured reserve list.
