Broncos lose DE Hunter to injury

The SportsXchange

The Denver Broncos received more bad injury news Wednesday when they learned that defensive end Jason Hunter will miss at least two months and possibly the season after suffering a triceps tear.

Hunter had moved ahead of Robert Ayers as a starter in the team's 4-3 base defense two weeks ago before the injury occurred during a technique drill Tuesday, the Denver Post reported.

Also Tuesday, right guard Chris Kuper sustained a broken forearm that will keep him out of action for at least six weeks.

Hunter has started 14 games the previous two seasons. He likely will be replaced by Ayers or second-round draft pick Derek Wolfe.
