Injury update: Broncos star out 3 to 6 weeks

Bad news for the Broncos

Demarcus Ware's fractured ulna could keep him out for some considerable time. The Broncos defensive captain got injured by teammate Von Miller's helmet when the two shared a sack on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

According to Mike Klis of 9News, Ware is sure to miss the Broncos next 3 games and could miss up to 6 weeks of play in total.

Ware commented on his own injury Sunday night:

"I got it from [Von Miller's] helmet on that sack we shared," said Ware, via Klis. "We need to take more X-rays [Monday] morning to make sure it didn’t break clean through."

Ware had a tackle in the game before leaving.

He missed five games last season due to a back injury. The veteran still managed to collect 7,5 sacks on the Broncos way to a Super Bowl victory.
