Description: In a surprise move, the Broncos are going to start tight end Virgil Green in the slot Thursday against San Diego. Wide receiver Wes Welker usually plays the slot but is out with a concussion. SOURCE: Mike Klis, Denver Post
Insight: Jacob Tamme was expected to start in Welker's place but instead the Broncos are going with Green, the third-year tight end from Nevada. Green has never caught a touchdown pass in 40 NFL games but with Manning throwing, there's always that possibility.
