Kyle Orton finally had himself a decent game during Jay Cutler's return to Denver on Sunday night. Orton was 12-for-16 for 96 yards when he smacked his throwing hand on player's helmet during the second quarter.

Naturally, with the way the Broncos season has been going, Orton's finger started gushing blood and he had to leave the game. One would think he'll need stitches or will be unavailable for at least a few days.

In other news, receiver Eddie Royal also pulled up lame during the game, meaning aside from Brandon Marshall (who doesn't seem to want to play at all) this team is a complete mess.

Peter King even Twittered this after speaking with head coach Josh McDaniels:

Just off the phone with Josh McDaniels for Monday Morning QB. For 33, he sounded 53. Not down. He'll need that stiff upper lip in '09.

Yeah, it's going to be a long year in Denver.
