Having worked several players through a big line at the MRI tube Monday, the Denver Broncos got mixed results as they try to rebound from Sunday night’s 23-10 loss to the New York Giants.
Luke Kuechly is out for the game and in the concussion protocol.
Last season, Kuechly played in just 10 games. He suffered a concussion in Week 11 against the Saints, and missed the rest of the season. He also suffered a concussion in Week 1 in 2015, which forced him to miss time. His injuries were a part of the Panthers’ drop off in 2016.
Kuechly was one of the anchors of the Panthers’ defense in 2015, when the team had a 15-1 season and went to the Super Bowl before ultimately losing to the Denver Broncos.
This season, Kuechly has 29 tackles and one interception for a Panthers defense that came into Thursday’s game third in the NFL in total defense.
Nose tackle is responsible for so much of the positive impact either side of the defensive line has. If that position is playing at a high level, the defensive line has less to worry about on both sides of that nose position.

Peko came in here looking like a washed up old guy and has instead fortified the middle of that defense and turn it into a force to be reckoned with.
In Sunday’s game alone, Fells caught four passes for 40 yards. While that doesn’t seem like a particularly big game for the Lions tight end, every single one of those catches earned the Lions a first down, two of which came on third-and-longs.
King’s early emergence as a boundary corner has been critical to the Packers’ success in defending the pass.
