Englewood, Colo. (AP) The banged-up Denver Broncos have caught a break.

Quarterback Jay Cutler doesn't have the hairline fracture in his left leg he feared.

An MRI exam was negative, but coach Mike Shanahan says he doesn't know if Cutler will be under center Sunday at Kansas City.
Shanahan says Cutler is still sore.

Cutler took a helmet to his lower leg, which was badly bruised, in the first half of the Broncos' 44-7 loss at Detroit this past Sunday.

Patrick Ramsey replaced Cutler and would start against the Chiefs if Cutler can't go. The Broncos would have to sign another quarterback in that case. One possibility is practice squad player Darrell Hackney
