Finally beginning to heal after a season-long siege of injuries, the Denver Broncos got more bad news when starting tight end Clarence Kay sustained a knee injury in practice. Kay was hurt during a routine pass drill on Thursday. Trainer Steve Antonopulos said Kay appeared to have suffered a torn cartilage in his right knee which might require arthroscopic surgery to repair. If so, he probably would be sidelined at least two weeks.

Denver Broncos running back Tony Dorsett is recuperating today from arthroscopic surgery for a knee injury sustained at training camp that may end his career. The 35-year-old Dorsett suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, a torn lateral cartilage and a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during a non-contact passing drill Thursday. Dorsett is expected to be released from Denver's St. Luke's Hospital early this week, according to Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano.

Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway played most of last month with a cracked rib, he revealed Tuesday, and Elway says he is still slightly bothered by the injury. Elway was hurt early in the second quarter against Pittsburgh on Nov. 5. Steelers nose tackle Gerald Williams hit Elway hard just as he released a pass. Elway does not remember who hit him, only that Steelers cornerback Rod Woodson intercepted the pass in the end zone.

Denver Bronco quarterback John Elway remained listed as "questionable" on the team's injury report until late last week, but Coach Dan Reeves said Elway's sprained right ankle was visibly improved. "He seemed like he was a lot more comfortable with it, a lot more confident than he was yesterday," Reeves said.

Broncos' trainer Steve Antonopulos told the Denver media Tuesday that quarterback John Elway's condition had improved, but he was unsure if Elway would be able to practice today. The Broncos indicated Elway will be listed as either questionable or doubtful on today's injury report. Elway, however, has told reporters he will play Sunday. Elway suffered a strained arch and injured a big toe (turf toe) in Sunday's 27-22 loss at Minnesota.
