Garett Bolles will shockingly start against Buffalo Bills
Denver Broncos rookie left tackle Garett Bolles will shockingly make a start against the Buffalo Bills in week three after an injury in week two…
If anyone out there questions Garett Bolles’ toughness, it’s clearly not justified.
Just one week after suffering what appeared to be a potential season-ending injury, the Denver Broncos’ rookie left tackle will make a start on the road against the Buffalo Bills.
To say this news is shocking is an understatement.
Barring anything unexpected, we’ll see Bolles start against the Bills, meaning the injury for which he was carted off the field on Sunday last week against the Cowboys was far less severe than originally thought.
There’s no complaints on our end.

Bolles is a critical piece of the Broncos’ success offensively. His physicality as a run blocker and athleticism in pass protection have both been huge additions to an offensive line that struggled badly last season at times.
With Bolles in the starting lineup, the Broncos don’t have to worry about starting Donald Stephenson or even Allen Barbre at the left tackle position against a pair of pass rushers from Buffalo who have the ability to get after the quarterback pretty regularly.
It’s going to be a tough enough matchup for the Broncos up front, but not having Bolles out there would have made it even harder on the Broncos.
Bolles earned the Broncos’ starting left tackle job pretty early in training camp, and has since justified his first round draft status by having the highest pass blocking efficiency of any rookie offensive lineman in the league thus far.
There’s no doubt the Broncos dodged a bullet with Bolles’ injury. This news is far better than anything they could have expected just a week ago.
