Longtime Broncos starting guard Ben Hamilton had a night to forget on national television Monday against the Steelers. Now he’s paying for it.
Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post reports that Hamilton has been replaced in the starting lineup by former Patriots guard Ross Hochstein. Hamilton is the longest tenured Bronco and has started every game which he’s been healthy for since 2002.
Denver’s offensive line has been a strength this year, especially when they are passing. But Hamilton has not enjoyed a great season by most accounts.
Hochstein’s reintroduction to the starting lineup won’t be easy. He’s likely to face off against Albert Haynesworth of the Redskins Sunday.
