Foot Injury Knocks Plummer Out of Vikings Game
By Andrew Mason

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos' wait for Jake Plummer'sreturn just got longer.

Wednesday morning, the team announced that Plummer is out for this week's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Yet it is not the sore right shoulder that will keep him on the sidelines; rather, it is an injured foot.

Plummer has grappled with injuries since Week 2, when he fell on his right shoulder as he stretched for a first down on a scramble at San Diego. He managed to throw a touchdown pass just after injuring the shoulder, but subsequently left that 37-13 win, with Steve Beuerlein playing the rest of the second quarter and the remainder of that game.

He was on the injury report for the days following that game, but played against the Oakland Raiders eight days later and posted a perfect first quarter (rating 158.3), accounting for three touchdowns as the Broncos throttled Oakland. He played and finished the next two games, but reaggravated the shoulder injury late in the Week 5 loss at Kansas City.

Plummer was listed as questionable throughout the days leading up to the win over the Pittsburgh Steelers with a sore shoulder. He took a painkilling shot prior to the game that would have allowed him to play in case of an injury to SteveBeuerlein, and was subsequently listed as the No. 2 quarterback, with Danny Kanell serving as the No. 3 option.

Plummer's absence means that Beuerlein will start for a second consecutive week when the Broncos visit Minnesota. Beuerlein is 2-2 as the Broncos' starter; he went 1-2 last year under center with a win over the Arizona Cardinals and overtime losses to the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers.

Check back for more on this story throughout the day on DenverBroncos.com. You can watch Plummer's press conference live at 11:45 a.m. (MDT).
