Chris Kuper Injury: Broncos Guard Had Procedure To Remove Screw

Denver Broncos guard Chris Kuper is likely on track for a return from injury by the time training camp begins, but he recently had a second procedure done to remove a screw from his fibula, according to the Denver Post. Kuper, recall, broke his fibula and dislocated his ankle during the 2011 season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kuper had a screw removed because it was discomforting him. There are no indications that Kuper has had any setbacks, allowing him to believe that he could be ready to start working out in June. He will miss the organized team activities, but he could be ready to do something during June minicamp if everything goes right.

Manuel Ramirez could potentially fill in for Kuper if he isn't ready to go. The Broncos could always draft a guard, but any such player wouldn't be expected to start.
