Chris Kuper injury: Broncos lineman has 'severe' ankle sprain

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Denver Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper is expected to be sidelined for a while after injuring his left ankle in Sunday's game.

Carted from the field in the second half of a key win over Cincinnati, Denver Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper reportedly suffered a severe left ankle sprain on Sunday, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Though his exact timetable will be clearer following Monday's MRI, the 29-year-old Kuper is still expected to miss a good chunk of time on the field. Named Denver's starting right guard heading into Week 6, Kuper has been completely unable to shake the injury bug over the last calendar year.

The 6'4, 303-pound lineman dislocated the same left ankle in Denver's regular season finale last January, and then suffered a broken forearm during training camp that forced him to miss the entire preseason. He gave way to backup Manny Ramirez for the first five games of the regular season in the starting lineup, and will once again hand over the reigns to Ramirez for the foreseeable future.
