Lynch Still Dealing With Neck Injury

By  | 

Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan says safety John Lynch is still suffering numbness and weakness from a jarring tackle two weeks ago.

Shanahan says he's not sure how quickly Lynch can return. He says the team doesn't want to take a chance on Lynch taking any hits until the numbness wears off.

Lynch had to leave an October 29th game with the Packers in the first quarter after the hit. He returned to practice last week in a limited capacity but was inactive yesterday against the Chiefs.

Lynch has said the injury is unrelated to a neck surgery he had in 2004.

The Broncos did not practice today and have no workouts scheduled tomorrow.

Lynch has 22 tackles and a sack in six games this season.
