Broncos starting guard Chris Kuper is injured again.

Kuper, who suffered a dislocated ankle in January and a broken forearm in August, suffered what is being termed a severe ankle sprain on Sunday in Cincinnati, the Denver Post reports.

There’s no word yet on how much time Kuper will miss, although an X-ray revealed that he doesn’t have any broken bones, and the indications are that the Broncos do expect him back before the season ends.

Manny Ramirez, who started at Kuper’s guard spot for the first month of the season while Kuper was recovering, will return to the starting lineup for as long as Kuper is out.

ramirez started at guard for the first month, so it's not like he's coming off the bench covered in rust. i'm not sure this is as huge of an advantage as we'd like to think.

that said i hope the edwards wall takes his lunch money.

so peyton will be forced to get rid of the ball in 1.9 seconds rather than 2 seconds.

that should help.

Alexander played inside against DC as well, handled the LG one on one too, Dwan took the double team and the DE's got to Bob.

Not as much as you. I think it's good move in obvious pass situations. I think he is better served being on outside most of the times.

I wanna see more shuffling with our players. Use them in different looks. Remember Peppers left bc he was "tired" of playing one position? Lol but we should move players around. Dwan and Hardy inside with CJ and Alexander on the edge on passing downs. NYG are so good at getting to the QB bc they create matchups that gives them advantages.

Doesn't make a huge difference, Kuper only played three games, Manny had played the previous 5. Kuper is a better player, yes, but Ramirez has proven to be capable.

Yeah and Hangartner has stepped in for Kalil without any noticeable drop-off, but that's not to say there isn't a difference.

Kuper was a starter for a reason.
