05:15 PM ET 06.19 | A battered Broncos offensive line has taken another hit. Broncos center J.D. Walton had surgery on his left ankle Monday to replace some of the hardware that was originally put in place after he fractured and dislocated the ankle Sept. 30 in Denver's 37-6 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Three sources said Wednesday that Walton had the procedure just days after he had participated on a limited basis in some of the technique drills during the Broncos minicamp last week. The Broncos have some optimism Walton could return to practice by late October or early November. In the worst-case scenario, however, Walton could miss the season if he encounters any additional complications during his rehab. Right guard Chris Kuper has experienced similar difficulties in his return from a fractured and dislocated ankle, which he suffered in the 2011 regular-season finale.

You would think that it would've been done long before this.
