Broncos starting guard Chris Kuper is injured again.

Kuper, who suffered a dislocated ankle in January and a broken forearm in August, suffered what is being termed a severe ankle sprain on Sunday in Cincinnati, the Denver Post reports.

There’s no word yet on how much time Kuper will miss, although an X-ray revealed that he doesn’t have any broken bones, and the indications are that the Broncos do expect him back before the season ends.

Manny Ramirez, who started at Kuper’s guard spot for the first month of the season while Kuper was recovering, will return to the starting lineup for as long as Kuper is out.

    Chris would like you to know that there is also severe ankle pain in that severe ankle sprain.

    Man, I wish Kuper could stay healthy. He is the second best O-lineman we have, and we are significantly worse when Ramirez is in there at RG.
    Get well soon!

    No biggie. Kups will return in 2-3 weeks. Manny does a good job filling his shoes.

    With how many times his helmet came off in that game I assumed he had a concussion when he went down.

    But we need him back and I hope he gets healthy again soon!
