Keith Brooking suffered a concussion during Denver's Week 5 loss to the New England Patriots.

Though Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos lost to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday, the Broncos at least exited Foxboro with just one player suffering an injury. Keith Brooking was forced from Sunday's loss to the Patriots with a concussion, and did not return to the game.

Brooking has registered just 17 tackles in Denver's first five games of the season. Brooking did force a fumble during Week 2's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, but otherwise has been quiet on defense.

It's unknown how severe Brooking's concussion is, but he'll need to pass a series of concussion tests if he's to play in next Monday night's game, when the Broncos head to San Diego to take on the Chargers on Monday Night Football. It's safe to consider Brooking week-to-week with the injury.

Offensive lineman Chris Kuper made his 2012 debut on Sunday, as he worked his way back from a broken arm.
