Bill Belichick has scary timing.
Not that Belichick could have known Ty Warren was about to be injured before he was released by the Patriots. But the Broncos, Warren's new team, are now at a loss because the injury-plagued defensive tackle will undergo surgery on his torn triceps and miss 3-6 months.
The Broncos are holding out hope Warren could return in mid-November, but that seems like a longshot. They will probably need his roster spot eventually with no guarantee he will actually be able to help them this season.Warren also missed last season with a hip surgery. Fellow starting defensive tackle Marcus Thomas is also hurt and could miss a few weeks to start the regular season. Kevin Vickerson and Brodrick Bunkley look like the starting defensive tackles now.
