Following the Denver Broncos34-14 win over the New Orleans Saints last week, the NFL informed the team on Wednesday that outside linebacker Wesley Woodyard has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.  Additionally, the offensive line has received the Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award for Week 8.

Against the Saints, Woodyard became just the ninth player since sacks began to be tracked in 1982 to record at least 10 tackles, one sack, one interception and one forced fumble in the same game.  Meanwhile, the offensive line allowed zero sacks and helped running back Willis McGahee rush for 122 yards and a score.

Quarterback Peyton Manning is also in the voting to be named the FedEx Air Player of the Week.  Fans can vote for Manning at

On the team’s injury front, the entire roster was on the field for practice Wednesday morning, including cornerback Tracy Porter (illness).  With a Week 9 match against the Bengals on deck, the team is close to full strength.

Congrats to Woodyard and the offensive line for the well-deserved awards. Bring on Cincinnati!

    So Porter is officially cleared to play on Sunday? Good news but I hope they find out what caused the stroke first.
