According to the Denver Post, Broncos LB Robert Ayers will be out six weeks, and he could return for the final month of the season. Ayers broke his foot in Denver’s loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

It’s another blow to the Broncos LB corps, which is still trying to recover from the loss of Elvis Dumervil. While Denver finished 10th in the NFL with 39 sacks last season, the Broncos currently rank 31st with only five sacks on the year.

Also, S Brian Dawkins will miss at least the next two games with a strained right knee ligament. But the Broncos also might choose to keep him out of the Oct. 31 game vs. the 49ers in London, because Denver has a bye the next week. That obviously would give Dawkins another week to heal.

Either way, Denver's defense will suffer.
