The Denver Broncos didn't escape Thursday night's victory over the New York Jets without an injury. Head coach John Fox announced that tight end Daniel Fells suffered a concussion during the game. On Friday afternoon, Fox told reporters the standard line that Fells will need to undergo concussion tests in order to determine his status for next week's game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fells had zero receptions and was targeted once by Tim Tebow. With the Broncos offense concentrating on running the ball, both the wide receivers and the tight ends have seen their production dip. Fells was never much of an impact player before this injury and he had had just four catches since Tebow took over as starter.

Julius Thomas, who missed several games due to a high ankle sprain, would be in line to should Fells not pass his concussion tests.
