Broncos Injury Update: Lance Ball Rib Injury Not Significant

Lance Ball was the most major injury suffered by the Broncos in their late loss against the San Francisco 49ers, but his injury does not appear to be significant.

Going into their game against the San Francisco 49ers, the Denver Broncos needed to stay healthy after a somewhat injury-spotted preseason. They accomplished that goal by keeping themselves on the field and off the sidelines for the most part, with one exception -- RB Lance Ball was taken off because of what looked to be a rib injury while the second team offense was running.

Fortunately, Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post posted on Twitter later Sunday that it didn't look like a very significant an injury. No other news has come out on Ball's condition or if he will be available for the Broncos' final preseason game against the Cardinals.

The Broncos will just be happy to see no new names on the injury list after the game with only a few weeks remaining before the regular season starts.
