Broncos Should Rest Garett Bolles Against Buffalo
Broncos left tackle Garett Bolles has made a remarkable recovery and is questionable for Sunday. The Broncos should still rest him against Buffalo.
All of Broncos Country definitely feared the worse when they saw Garett Bolles go down and see the look of pain on his face. The injury report did not look good at first. However, what seemed like a week-to-week injury turned into a fast recovery.
I will say this, I never questioned Garett Bolles’ toughness and after this fast recovery I will never do so. But that does not mean that the Denver Broncos should exercise caution when getting Bolles back on the field.
With a huge game against Oakland next week and then the bye, I believe it would be wise for the Broncos to rest Garett Bolles at least for this week. It may not even be a bad idea to have him rest for the Oakland Raiders game next week so that he has three weeks to heal up.
If Garett Bolles feels well enough to play next week, then I would not fight or disagree with the decision. The matter of the fact is that there is a lot of football left to be played.
There will be 12 games left after the bye and eight of them are on the road. It will be key for the Denver Broncos to be as healthy as they can for that long stretch of games.

Plus, seeing Allen Barbre’s performance, I would be comfortable having him start for the next game or two. If a guy needs to rest, then it is important to get these guys as healthy as they can down the stretch.
Garett Bolles got lucky and is some sort of superhero. But I would not risk any further injury. Stay on the sideline Garett. The team is going to need you down the stretch.
