Some Broncos still feeling effects of bus crash

Several Broncos players said they were feeling “headaches and soreness” after what was termed a minor bus crash on Monday, according to Mike Klis of 9News.

A driver in front of a motorcade of Broncos team buses coming from a walkthrough practice stopped and caused the first team bus to swerve and the second bus to rear-end the first bus. The third bus then hit the two other buses.

A police officer on a motorcycle between the first and second buses had to get out of the way and his motorcycle fell to the pavement.

Peyton Manning, who was sitting near the front of the first team bus, said that the crash is a “fitting” start to Super Bowl week considering the Broncos’ ups and downs this season.

Manning can’t be too traumatized by this incident if he’s that philosophical about it, and it’s unclear which Broncos players said they felt soreness and headaches after the crash. But this story is worth keeping an eye on.

While there were no apparent injuries at the time, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the lingering effects could have an impact on Super Bowl 50.
