The injury nose tackle Shaun Cody suffered Sunday against the Bills is a little more serious than he let on.
Cody suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung, according to a person familiar with his status.
Coach Gary Kubiak termed Cody as day-to-day with his injuries. He called them “rib issues” in his Monday news conference and said Cody had an MRI Tuesday.
“Shaun has always been able to work through things,” Kubiak said Wednesday in his daily news conference. “We’re 100 percent committed to the training room.”
It is possible for a player to play with broken ribs, but that depends largely on the severity of the break and their pain tolerance. Cody dealt with a back injury earlier this season, but he didn’t miss any regular-season games because of it. He typically gets Wednesdays off for maintenance purposes.
