ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Only by lifting weights has a weight been lifted off of Elvis Dumervil.

The Denver Broncos pass rush specialist has been hampered by a sore left shoulder all season, an injury that's sapped his strength and caused him endless aggravation.

Until now.

Over the bye week, Dumervil was finally able to pump some iron and build some confidence.

This was a step in the right direction for Dumervil, who had a league-leading 17 sacks in 2009 but hasn't had one since.

His lack of sacks has become a sore subject.

Dumervil missed all of 2010 with a torn pectoral muscle, a freak injury that happened in training camp shortly after he signed a $58 million extension.

This year, it's been the dinged-up shoulder that's held him back.
