In his second season in the NFL, Denver Broncos DL Malik X. Jackson leads the team with 11 tackles for lost yardage and 15 quarterback hurries.

Our young guys have gotten more time, some of it due to injuries, some of it due to their getting better. They improved a lot in practice and both have stepped in and done a very good job."

Broncos | Kevin Vickerson could go on IR

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 10:41:49 -0800

The Denver Broncos are leaning toward placing DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) on the season-ending Injured Reserve in order to add another defensive tackle to the active roster. Vickerson has been an early-down player in the team's base defense as well as nickel packages. DTs Mitch Unrein and Sylvester Williams split time filling in for Vickerson in Week 12. Williams hasn't materialized as a key player up front this season, and he's been inactive three times this year and twice in the past four games.
