When Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter both left Denver’s first practice of training camp with injuries, Buckhalter’s back strain was supposed to be minor.
Nine days have passed, and Buckhalter still isn’t back on the field. The Denver Post reports the 31-year-old plans to visit a specialist this week examine his back and neck. That’s never good.
Knowshon Moreno is expected to miss most, if not all, of the preseason after a hamstring injury. LenDale White is already missing practice, and he’s suspended for the first four games.
The situation isn’t dire just yet — it’s August 9 — but perhaps Brian Westbrook should be expecting a phone call soon.
