Good News For Jay Cutler, Bad News For The Broncos

Denver Broncos Quarterback Jay Cutler did not sustain a hairline fracture in his left leg during yesterday's game. The MRI was negative, but coach Mike Shanahan is still questioning whether Cutler should practice this week and participate in next Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Cutler took a helmet to his lower leg last Sunday, which left him badly bruised and currently sore.

Patrick Ramsey replaced Cutler in last Sunday's game and would become the starter this Sunday if Cutler is unable to perform. The Broncos would have to sign another quarterback in this scenario, and two possibilities are the practice squad player Darrell Hackney or long snapper Mike Leach

In a season where the Broncos are already struggling, the last thing they need is for their starting QB Jay Cutler to go down. That division is so weak right now, as bad as the Broncos played, at 3-5 the Broncos actually still have a chance to win their division. Since we're more than midway through, the Broncos have to put together a winning surge, but they won't be able to do it with Ramsey.
