Nalen out for the season
Bronco center Tom Nalen's season appears to be at an end. Nalen was injured late in Sunday's overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs and was diagnosed today with a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. His recovery is expected to take six months. Ben Hamilton will be moved to the center position. He was a fourth-round draft pick in 2001. He played and started at center for four years at the University of Minnesota and spent the spring in the NFL Europe League, playing center for the Berlin Thunder. Hamilton was inserted at left guard during training camp and has been the starter there all year. Steve Herndon replaced Hamilton on Sunday after Hamilton moved over to center. Herndon and Lennie Friedman will probably compete for the starting left guard position. "Tom has been the nucleus of our offensive line," head coach Mike Shanahan said. "It's always hard to lose your leader, especially the guy who coordinates everything, but we've got some people who are behind him that I think will step up and play well." Nalen has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times and has made 124 consecutive starts.
