Fox: Franklin 'Not Ruled Out By Any Stretch'

Posted Oct 15, 2013

Head Coach John Fox addressed the status of tackle Orlando Franklin on his weekly appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Most of the attention from Head Coach John Fox's weekly appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio was on one topic in particular.

But Fox also addressed the health of right tackle Orlando Franklin, who suffered knee and ankle sprains in the team's 35-19 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"We'll see tomorrow -- he had a good day of treatment today (and) yesterday. He's not ruled out by any stretch, so he'll be day-to-day," he told Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller.

After Franklin's injury, the Broncos shuffled the offensive line by inserting Chris Kuper at right guard and moving Louis Vasquez to right tackle.

Quarterback Peyton Manning wasn't sacked in the game, so Fox said he was pleased with the group's performance.

"Our O-line coaches do a great job of moving guys around," he said. "I think they did a superb job. If it doesn't work out for Orlando, we'll pretty much go that way."

He also touched on the return of Von Miller now that the linebacker's suspension is over.

"He's a special player. He's very, very talented, one of the better pass rushers, in my opinion, in the league," Fox said. "We'll see how it goes in practice. I haven't watched him practice in six weeks. He's been in the building, he's been at meetings, he's been with our strength and conditioning coaches, so he looks great. We'll see how he looks in practice tomorrow."
