Injury Report: Big Vick out with hip dislocation

According to Adam Schefter, Broncos DT Kevin Vickerson suffered a dislocated hip on Sunday night. While the injury will not require surgery, it will keep Big Vick out for at least six weeks, and may end his season.

Injury Report: Broncos in better shape than feared

According to Jack Del Rio, the Broncos expect to have both Julius Thomas and Champ Bailey back on the field for the rematch with the Chiefs at Arrowhead.

He says the team is still awaiting the MRI results on the injured hip of Kevin Vickerson, while Knowshon Moreno's ankle is merely bruised, making him day-to-day, along with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Combined with the injury to Chiefs LB Justin Houston, these are extremely positive developments for a team with a chance at a sweep of Kansas City on Sunday.

Injury Report: MRIs take center stage, but Broncos still have big AFCW edge

Especially for Kansas City, a bunch of Monday MRIs could go a long way toward determining the upcoming Broncos/Chiefs rematch at Arrowhead, and thus, the AFCW.

After the Chiefs fell at home to the Chargers, LB Tamba Hali was carted off the field with a knee injury and left the stadium on crutches, while LB Justin Houston departed with his right arm in a sling.

The two players, who have combined for 20 of the team's 37 sacks, will each undergo an MRI on Monday.
