Halftime look at Denver's QB situation
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Here are some more notes on the Denver Broncos quarterback situation in Monday night's game against the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium. The Patriots lead the Broncos, 20-0.
- A press box announcement has been made that Jay Cutler has suffered a finger injury, and his return is questionable. He appeared to strike his hand on Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork's helmet while throwing a ball that was intercepted by Brandon Meriweather late in the second quarter.
- Replacement quarterback Patrick Ramsey entered for the Broncos and, on his fourth snap, fumbled while dropping back to pass.
- The Broncos carry only two quarterbacks. No third-stringer exists, and nobody seems to know who the disaster quarterback is.
- Ramsey entered Monday with only seven games played over the past three-plus seasons. He has made only 74 throws in that span.
