The Denver Broncos announced yesterday that five players will not travel with the team to London:
McDaniels said five injured players will not accompany the team to London and they will stay in Denver to rehabilitate. The players are cornerback Perrish Cox, defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson, safety Darcel McBath, linebacker Robert Ayers and linebacker Wesley Woodyard. None of these decisions were surprises.
Cox suffered a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Raiders, which means he has yet to be asymptomatic of a concussion. Because Robert Ayers is recovering from a broken bone in his foot it would have made little sense for him to travel with the team. McBath, Vickerson, and Woodyard are out with a variety of injuries.
