#Broncos center J.D. Walton has had an additional surgery on his ankle this week. Is expected to miss season. A tough deal for him.

Walton started every game during his first two seasons in the league and 4 more in 2012 before fracturing his ankle, an injury that will now cost him the 2013 season aswell.

Former Patriots center Dan Koppen might be signed to take over again like he did in 2012.

They did well without him in 2012. Tough but not a big blow by any means.

I wouldn't even call it tough. Walton is one of the worst centers in the league and Koppen came in and outperformed him as his injury replacement. I expect to see that again if anything for some continuity.

He always seemed to be being thrown back into the QB or RB when I saw him play. Not going to be a big loss.

If you want Manning alive at the end of the year, you don't make that move. Trust me, Saturday is done. Evan Dietrich-Smith out played him by a ways last year. Evan Dietrich-Smith, just let that sink in a bit....

Saturday is a pro bowler though, how can this be.

I don't know if he's starter material tbh. Koppen isn't that great anymore, hasn't been for years.

Agreed (graded as the 22nd best centerast year) but there must aren't any better options waiting around for jobs

It's to bad, somebody got robbed of a great memory and experience not because of just name recognition, but sheer ignorance.

I wouldn't be surprised if Koppen comes back, he was great last year. He is the only player I can think of off the top of my head that lived up to expectations after leaving the patriots.

If koppen doesn't happen and the 2011 draftee phillip blake doesn't work out it would be awesome to see Kuper at center, if that happens and he can snap the ball well and is comfortable there then I think the rushing game would be much improved.
