The Broncos will go into the regular season with guard Ben Hamilton on the sidelines.
The seventh-year offensive lineman, who has been sidelined since incurring a concussion during training camp, will remain shelved for another two weeks after a specialist recommended that he avoid the field while continuing his recovery.
“The thing is, a specialist in Pittsburgh recommended that he not do anything for two weeks, to stay away from any type of conditioning,” Shanahan said. “That’s where we’re at right now. He’s not going to do anything for two weeks, and after two weeks, they’ll evaluate him again and give a recommendation.”
Three-year veteran Chris Myers has filled in for Hamilton at left guard throughout the entire preseason. If he remains in the starting lineup, then Sunday’s game at Buffalo will mark his first NFL regular-season starting assignment.
