The Denver Broncos will not have their starting Guard Chris Kuper for the next 6 weeks. That should go 3 weeks into the regular season, but the Chargers don’t meet up against the Broncos until week 6. At least it is 3 weeks that Peyton Manning will not have one of his top guys protecting him up front. The bigger beating he takes, the better!

Kuper broke one of his bones in his left forearm during practice.  He will be replaced in the lineup by Manny Ramirez.
