Kyle Orton has been told that Tim Tebow will remain the Broncos' starting QB for their Week 17 home matchup versus San Diego, even if Orton is healthy enough to play. While he admitted to being disappointed by the decision, Orton said,
I understand that as an organization you have a lot invested in a first-round draft pick and you want to see him play, so that's how it goes.
During his press conference today, Denver interim coach Eric Studesville announced that FB Spencer Larsen had been placed on IR with an ankle injury he suffered during Sunday's game. Taking Larsen's place on the roster will be G Stanley Daniels, who was promoted from the practice squad and had started the season's first four games at left guard.
