Denver Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard missed the team’s week six matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and while he certainly would rather be out on the field, he had a good time being a coach on the sideline for the Broncos’ defenders.
“Coaching is something that I want to do when I’m done playing football. I was watching the tendencies, what we scouted on and giving our guys coaching points of what to do, but I definitely want to be on the field this week.”
Woodyard is, at this point, considered a game-time decision for the Broncos. He was limited in practice this week after missing last week’s game, but all signs point to he and Robert Ayers–who also missed the Jacksonville game–playing against the Colts in prime time on Sunday Night Football.
Getting Von Miller back is huge for the Broncos, but getting Wesley Woodyard back might be just as critical. Woodyard is the Broncos’ defensive captain and having him out there is a major advantage. Paris Lenon isn’t exactly a lateral move if Woodyard can’t go.
I think Woodyard will get up for this one.
