Denver Broncos (3-2)


Broncos lose third right tackle to injury in five-day span

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos' injury epidemic has gotten drastically worse.

Coach Vance Joseph said Friday that Donald Stephenson tore his left calf muscle at practice a day earlier when linebacker Corey Nelson also suffered a season-ending elbow injury.

Stephenson, the third right tackle to get hurt in a five-day span, and Nelson were expecting big roles Sunday when the Broncos (3-2) visit the Chargers (2-4).
