Broncos lose Stewart Bradley for several weeks after wrist surgery

The Broncos are still waiting to hear how long they will be without linebacker Von Miller this season, but their concerns at the position don’t end there.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Stewart Bradley, who has been playing with the first team at middle linebacker, will miss several weeks after having wrist surgery. It’s not known what injury the surgery was intended to repair, but it will lead to more shuffling at linebacker for the Broncos.

According to Klis, Wesley Woodyard will move from the weak side to the middle while Danny Trevathan will move from his nickel role to the starting lineup in Woodyard’s place. Miller will start on the strong side of the defense when he’s available with Nate Irving and Shaun Phillips on hand to take his place when and if Miller’s suspension officially gets handed down by the league.

Bradley’s loss is obviously not as significant as losing Miller, but it’s part of a growing number of injuries that could hinder the Broncos early in the season. Cornerback Champ Bailey is expected to be out for a while after injuring his foot over the weekend and defensive end Derek Wolfe suffered a scary looking neck injury during the game against the Seahawks, although he was able to travel home with the team on Saturday night.

    Not to cheer an injury but this dude was terrible. He may be blind too, I mean did you see him trying to cover a te on Saturday. he has no clue where to go and even if he did heed be too slow to act on it

    As a broncos fan, the silver lining for me is getting to see Danny Trevathan get some PT. He had some great hustle plays as a rookie last year and hopefully can prove that he belongs with the pros

    This guy has backup written all over him. Give Irving or Trevathan a shot.

    We were dumb to get rid of Keith Brooking.

    These past few weeks have been brutal on our defense! For once I would just like some good news…damn!

    wow…Stewart Bradley is made of GLASS. Teams would do well not to depend on him.

    Old teams like this fall apart rather quickly.

    Bradley had the beginning of a solid career when he was here in Philadelphia, but just could not stay on the field. He had an INT and a bunch of tackles his first game starting, but then just kept getting hurt. Tough break for him, could have been something more than what he has become.

    Get ready for a big dose of purple kool aid on Sept 5th Bronco fans.
    I’ll be surprised if Manning finishes the game.
    With a patchwork offensive line and a patchwork defensive front seven an annihilation is pending.
    This beatdown will rock all the odds makers and the NFL in general.
    The Ravens are dramatically improved on defense (thanks for Elvis) and the Broncos are in pieces.
    Ravens and Texans in the AFC CH Game this year!!!!

    None of your guys wanted to see the Ravens again anyway and now they have some excuses.
