Broncos add Brandon McManus to practice squad

Concerned by last week's atrocious performance on kickoffs by Connor Barth (what did they expect?), the Broncos have brought Brandon McManus back into the fold by adding him to their practice squad.

Per Mike Klis, the team signed McManus to ensure they could activated him "on moment's notice." It's a sensible move for a team that kicks off a hell of a lot more often than it attempts field goals (last week's five-FG game inclusive).

Chiefs safety Eric Berry done for season with possible lymphoma

If we're all being totally honest, we're never disappointed when a key opposing player is unable to play against our team due to injury.

Rooting for or celebrating an injury is definitely in poor taste, and suggests a complete loss of perspective. But, you know Packers fans were excited when Terrell Davis left SB 32 with his migraine, and who could blame them?
