AFC Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders


Broncos OC Pat Shurmur said he was unaware of the nature of G Graham Glasgow‘s heart issue until after the game. The veteran initially stayed in the game with an elevated heart rate before checking out and going to the hospital. 

Based on what we heard was going on with him physically, what he did the other night was super heroic. I mean he battled through it. I guess in the moment we didn’t know how big of an issue it was for him,” he said via KUSA’s Mike Klis. “But he’s a tough sucker and until he’s back we’re going to miss him. We don’t know when that will be but we’re sure glad he’s OK. And we want to make sure he’s right before we put him back out there because what he did was super heroic.”

  • Bieniemy elaborated that he would tell USC that he’s focusing on the NFL season if they reached out: “I think you guys know me better than that. So, if USC reached out to me right now, my answer would be I am preparing for this team to play against the Baltimore Ravens. And that’s how I roll; you guys know that.” (Herbie Teope)


  • NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reports Raiders QB Marcus Mariota is expected to be out multiple weeks after aggravating a quad injury, with “a few weeks” being the best-case scenario.
