This is from the Denver post:
There's no truth to the rumor the Broncos are going to sign 43-year-old John Elway as their new quarterback.
Then again, considering the current state of the Broncos' quarterback corps, maybe that's not such a farfetched idea.
Yeah, starting QB Jake Plummer has a broken foot. Beurlein, his backup, has a broken finger in his throwing hand. Now, things are getting worse:
The latest blow arrived Friday when Danny Kanell - the former third-stringer who was elevated to emergency starter this week - missed practice with a bad case of the flu. Kanell is officially listed as probable, but coach Mike Shanahan said he's not sure if Kanell will play Sunday against Baltimore.
"This morning he was vomiting; he's got the flu right now," Shanahan said after Friday's practice. "He's a little bit dehydrated. We gave him some IVs, and hopefully he'll be all right by game time. We'll find out. We'll wait and see. I really don't know. He's got a touch of the flu. We'll see how he is in a couple of days."
They've resigned Jarious Jackson and he may end up being the starter. If they're lucky:
But Jackson isn't feeling well, either.
"I'm coming down with a cold myself," he said with a scratchy voice. "Man, my voice is already deep, I sound like an elephant. I'm definitely taking medicine and trying to dry it up before Sunday."
This doesn't look good.
