Broncos rookie CB Webster has broken thumb
Another week, another injury for Denver’s dwindling
This time, its rookie cornerback Kayvon Webster, who fractured
his right thumb in the Broncos’ 27-20 loss to San Diego on Thursday
Webster was scheduled for surgery Friday.
He might miss a game and will have to play with a cumbersome
cast for several weeks afterward, much like Denver linebacker Von
Miller did two years ago.
The Broncos are hopeful that cornerback Champ Bailey, who has
missed 11 of 14 games with a nagging left foot injury, will return
for their next game against Houston on Dec. 22.
Denver (11-3) leads New England (10-3) in the race for
home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs. The Patriots can overtake
them with a win at Miami on Sunday.
