    Didn't see this posted elsewhere, so here's the link:

    http://www.nfl.com/preseason/story?id=09000d5d8019615d&template=without-video&confirm=true

    Denver starting defensive end Ebenezer Ekuban likely suffered a season-ending torn Achilles' tendon, and running back Travis Henry sprained his left knee in the Broncos' 31-20 preseason loss to Dallas on Saturday night.

    Ekuban hurt his right Achilles' in the second quarter. He slammed his helmet to the turf and was in obvious pain. Across the field, his agony was felt by former college and Cowboys teammate Greg Ellis, who is slowly trying to come back from the same injury.

    "It's a shame to lose Ebenezer for the year," coach Mike Shanahan said. "He's been a real leader for us."

    T Henry left the game with an injury as well for the Broncos but don't tell Tom Jackson as he thinks Henry is the next T Davis. :unsure:

    Wasn't he the one that tried to cover LT last year in Denver, when Rivers hit LT in the flat on a quick out for a 50+ yard TD?

    The Donks were pathetic last night. DJ Williams so far has been a huge embarrassing failure playing MLB and their D line is still abysmal. LT could have rushed for 300 against them last night. That new scheme they have on D plays right into our strengths.

    You sucked that right outta my head! :lol:

    It was wrong, but so true. It's a shame that the players are having to pay for the coach's bullsh*t kharma.

    Shanahan is a cowardly prick & adopts a BS method of blocking for his linemen. The NFL needs to man up & address this issue right now. Just ask Jamal how it affects play on the field.

    Personally, I'd like to see Igor *****-slap Shanarat this year. That would make me very, very happy. :icon_banana:

    If it sounds harsh, it is. Poetic justice. Rather see the cut blocker be the one who gets the chop, though.

    Can't say that I'm sad to hear this.

    The worst thing is that now not only do we have to worry about our DL getting their knees ruined in 2 Denver games each year, but now the g'damn Raiders are using the same cheap *** blocking scheme.

    Ekuban was actually for both Cleveland and Denver a fairly solid pass rushing and run stopping DE. Now the Broncos are kinda thin at the DE part with only, more or less, pass rushers. Engelberger (49er cast off :lol: ) and I guess Jarvis Moss (lean pass rusher) will start with Crowder (thin pass rusher) and Dumervill (midget pass rusher) backing him up. Hells bells just run on the edges and push those schmucks out of the way, LT will break every single game rushing record in existence.

    Agreed. They have to ban that cut-blocking shiat. That move is going to end someones career. Denver admits they do it too. COME ONE GODDELL. BAN THAT PHUKING CHEAT SHOT CUT BLOCK CRAP ALREADY!!

    :yes:

    If Goodell was to ban cut-blocking, he would forever be on my Christmas list, no matter what else he did from that point on as commissioner. :tup:
