ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos' first loss under rookie coach Josh McDaniels produced plenty of problems that need fixing and one big injury they'll have to deal with.

McDaniels said right tackle Ryan Harris won't play against Pittsburgh next week after sustaining a toe injury in the Broncos' loss at Baltimore. McDaniels was still trying to learn the extent of Harris' injury.

Harris, a third-year pro from Notre Dame, has started 22 consecutive games for one of the league's best offensive lines. He was replaced in the first half Sunday by second-year pro Tyler Polumbus, who is in line to make his first NFL start against the Steelers next Monday night.

Time for Woodley to step up and be "special"

Pressure Orton and our chances for a positive outcome increase exponentially

Especially since Ryan Clady is one of the best on the other side (not that he'll necessarily stop Harrison, but still, this should be Woodley's game to step it up).

And we could be without Clark, Timmons, and be down to our thrid string DE.

I'd bet Timmons plays but if he doesn't Key Fox has been solid. Fox however cannot provide the inside blitz threat that Timmons brings onto the field plus since the Broncs need a short passing game to hide Orton's weaknesses that plays right into Timmons' pass coverage strengths.
