Broncos dealing with injuries across offensive line

08:57 AM ET 06.21 | The offensive line for the Denver Broncos hasn't been the greatest over the past few seasons, though some of the problem has been inconsistent starters resulting from various injury issues across the line. The team seems to be headed in that direction again for this season, too, if Wednesday's worst-case scenario regarding center J.D. Walton comes true. The Broncos aren't known for having a ton of depth on the offensive line as is and, if Walton is out, there isn't a lot of hope for a team that will also see starters Chris Kuper and Ryan Clady coming back from injury. Clady is also holding out, which certainly doesn't help matters.

The Broncos did re-sign Dan Koppen, who took over and played pretty well for them last season, and they have already moved Manny Ramirez to center after signing Louis Vasquez during free agency which improves their situation when it comes to replacing Kuper. Clady did not take part in OTA's and is wanting a long term deal, but did sign his franchise tender and he has not said he would hold out.

It's not a great situation, but the story is being very selective about what it's reporting.

I took it to mean the flunkies posted an article that was authored before Koppen was re-signed.

Maybe, but Koppen only plugs one leak.

This could become a real pain in the neck for Peyton.

...ok, that was pretty weak, but I'm half in the bag right now.
