The Broncos improved to 2-0 on Sunday, but they emerged from the victory over the Colts with injuries on both sides of the ball.

Linebacker DeMarcus Ware is expected to miss several weeks with an ulna fracture and they may be without right tackle Donald Stephenson for a similar amount of time.

Stephenson, who signed with the Broncos as a free agent this offseason, injured his calf against Indianapolis, forcing him out of the game and multiple reports say that he’ll miss at least this week’s game against the Bengals.

The Broncos shuffled their line when Stephenson got hurt, moving right guard Michael Schofield to right tackle and inserting Darrion Weems at guard. The team may also get 2015 second-round pick Ty Sambrailo back from the elbow injury that has kept him out of the first two games and the preseason.

    Don’t like to see injuries. Stephenson is solid but just never could seem to get out of Andy Reid’s doghouse.
    The Chiefs sure missed him Sunday.
