Brock Osweiler has strained MCL, will be backup in Divisional round


Brock Osweiler will be the Broncos backup next week in the Divisional round.

Osweiler suffered an MCL strain in the second quarter of the Broncos weekend finale against the Chargers before being benched in the second half in favor of Peyton Manning.

With the Broncos already naming Peyton Manning their starting quarterback for the playoffs, Osweiler will now take over clipboard duties for the Broncos. After initially providing a boost to the offense, the Broncos found more success last week when Manning took over.

“I have a few nicks that are a little more serious than others, but come next Sunday, I’ll be ready to roll,” Osweiler said via 9News in Denver.
