I don’t root for injury for athletes, however, I may get a little happy when I hear some studs from the teams the Bengals are about to face may miss the game.
Such is the case with Elvis Dumervil. According to the Denver Post it looks like the pass rusher and sack master may be doubtful for this weekends match-up. Dumervil does have a history with injuries, but when healthy he is one of the best at getting after the QB. I think him missing the game gives the Bengals line a huge advantage on the left side.
Also out this weekend (again, according to the Post) are Bronco’s wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, linebacker D.J. Williams and defensive tackle Ty Warren.
Then, to add more to the list, all star cornerback Champ Bailey, wide receiver Brandon Lloyd and running back Knowshon Moreno are iffy at best.
Bailey has long been one of the best corners in the league and Lloyd and Moreno are both key pieces of the Bronco’s offense.
Things could bode well for the Bengals in Denver this weekend.
