DENVER — **A win in Saturday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams was gravy, but one of the other major successes was leaving Sports Authority Field at Mile High without any significant injuries. Three Broncos were treated for injuries during the game, but the most notable was a knee injury to wide receiver Cody Latimer.
Latimer said in the locker room after the game that he has a hyperextended knee, and added, "It should be all right, though. I feel good."
Like Latimer, Head Coach Gary Kubiak also was not too concerned about it, adding, "We do not think it's serious."
Running back C.J. Anderson and fullback Andy Janovich also suffered injuries during Saturday's game, but neither kept them out of the game.
Anderson left the game in the first quarter with a cut on his ear, which he got stitched up in the locker room before returning to help drive the Broncos to a touchdown.
"That's the first time I've ever got stitches in my life," Anderson said. "I was in here and everyone was probably nervous and scared but I'm fine. I got stitches and I don't know how it happened. I just felt me bleeding and when there's blood in the head area you must take yourself out. You don't want to be a tough guy because you don't know where the blood is coming from or what's going on so I'm fine."
Kubiak added that Janovich has "a banged-up shoulder."
