ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos linebacker corps is so ravaged by injuries, Jamie Winborn has offered to relocate.

Weakside, strong side or middle linebacker, he'll play wherever the Broncos need. He's even offered to play quarterback, saying he'd be a "good option QB."

But that's not an option. The Broncos couldn't afford to lose another linebacker, down three starters already.

Nate Webster is expected to miss a few weeks with a strained MCL that he sustained against Cleveland, the same injury that sidelined D.J. Williams the week before.

Boss Bailey, the team's other front-line linebacker, went on injured reserve after hurting his knee at New England on October 20th.

Winborn says it's "definitely been weird, guys going down like that." but he says that happens in this league, and he and his teammates "just have to overcome it."
