Broncos QB Undergoes Procedure Near Throwing Shoulder

A lot of the talk surrounding the Denver Broncos lately has been negatively focused towards their new Quarterback Russell Wilson, and while a lot of it is due to the off-field personality of the former Seahawks starter, it has certainly bled into his play on the field in recent weeks. Now, while Wilson isn't one to make excuses, according to reports, he certainly has a very good one, as it has come out today that No. 3 has been dealing with a partially torn lat for the past few weeks, and today, had a quick procedure to get the issue under control.

It seems as though the former Super Bowl winning QB will be playing through the pain, and with an extended break from Thursday Night Football to next Monday, it's going to benefit him and his quick recovery even more.

The Thursday night game was one of the worst in recent NFL memory, and while the Broncos can't take that loss back, they can do their best to move on and improve on the offensive side of the ball, and with a 2-3 record, they're still well within striking distance of the AFC playoffs. Wilson has been one of the best QB's in the league for the past decade, and despite what you think of him off the field, he's still got the ability to be an elite QB, and with a contract spanning the next six years, the team need to make it work, and perhaps getting this procedure done will help right that ship.
