Broncos vs. Jets injury update: RT Jared Veldheer is out; CB Trumaine Johnson out The Denver Broncos (2-2) are a little banged up heading into the road contest against the New York Jets (1-3) on Sunday.“We’ve got one guy out for the game and that’s Jared Veldheer http://www.thebroncosfootballauthentic.com/domata-peko-jersey-authentic ,” Head Coach Vance Joseph said on Friday. “We’ve got one guy doubtful, Marquette King, and we’ve got two questionable, Adam Gotsis and Todd Davis.”They could be starting a punter who has never played in an NFL game in Colby Wadman who was signed to the Broncos practice squad just over a week ago. The Broncos defense could also take a hit to their run stopping ability if one or both Gotsis and Davis are out as well.On the Jets side of things, the big loss for them will be cornerback Trumaine Johnson http://www.thebroncosfootballauthentic.com/jeff-heuerman-jersey-authentic , which could open things up for Case Keenum in the passing game. Here is a full list of injuries from both teams heading into their Week 5 matchup.

Since, I just wrote up 3rd and long as well. I’m about typed-out for the day, so there is gong to be very little prose in this piece. I’ll post the data, you can make of it what you will. Tables first for those who prefer that kind of view.OffensiveDefensiveNow for the pretty pictures :-)Offensive DataConnor McGovern, Matt Paradis Womens Royce Freeman Jersey , Garett Bolles and Ronald Leary have played every offensive for us so far this year. Turner has played quite well when he has been called upon. Turner has currently played 30% of the offensive snaps this year. PFF has him ranked as the 34th best OT in the game and he has only allowed one sack according the data from the Washington Post. Losing Jake Butt for the year hurts because Jeff Heuerman proved last game that he is not a quality NFL TE. There is no way he should be on the field for close to 90% of the offensive snaps in any game (just my opinion). He got his lunch money stolen on the interception last game.It’s interesting to see the balance here particularly if you factor out the 3rd game where Lindsay got ejected. I like the trend line for Andy Janovich and I hope that continues. Nothing really of note here other than to show we run 4WR sets about one out of every five plays. Defensive DataIt looks like we are trying to keep Wolfe fresh by getting Gotsis and Harris more PT.Todd Davis is now playing more than Brandon Marshall (due partly to injury). Josey Jewell appears to be an interchangeable part now at ILB, which is a good thing. The symmetry here shows that Shane Ray and Shaquil Barrett and the Backups for Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. I like that we are getting Von some rest, but I don’t like that there have been critical late game defensive snaps where Von is on the sideline instead of in the game. That can’t be allowed to happen. I thought the whole point of getting him rest early in the game was so that he could be fresh in the 4th quarter when he really needs to shine. Justin Simmons has yet to miss a defensive snap for us this year. It will be interesting to see if Isaac Yiadom has learned enough at any point during his rookie season to start getting some rotational snaps in place of Tramaine Brock or Adam Jones (assuming that they both stay healthy or return to health). So did any of this surprise you? For those who want to see the special teams snaps you can view the data here.
