The Denver Post is reporting that Broncos running back Correll Buckhalter will see a specialist for his back/neck injury. Jeff Legwold writes:
The team hasn't publicly discussed Buckhalter's injury, but put the words "neck" or "back" and "specialist" in the same sentence and over the years that has usually meant teams are looking at the discs in the spine to see if there are any that have become herniated or out of position that are pushing on nerves, etc ...
Disc injuries tend to stick around like the awkward third wheel or uninvited guest at a party. They’re just sort of there. Nobody knows what to do or how to make them go away.
Keep in mind, the Broncos are already without presumed starting running back Knowshon Moreno (hamstring). LenDale White could be the No. 1 back throughout the preseason. Ouch.
