Broncos QB Kyle Orton Will Reportedly Play In Week 11

Despite being listed as questionable with an ankle injury, NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports that Denver quarterback Kyle Orton will play in the team’s pivotal divisional showdown against the Chargers.

Considering how poorly backup Chris Simms played in relief of Orton against the Redskins, this is certainly great news for the Broncos, who will also be without standout offensive tackle Kyle Harris.

After starting the year 6-0, the Broncos have dropped three straight to fall into a tie with the Chargers for the division lead. The Broncos currently hold the tiebreaker by virtue of their win over the Chargers earlier in the season, making this weekend’s game so key: with a win the Broncos can open what amounts to a two-game lead in the division; a loss leaves them one back.
