Dawkins has a strained right knee ligament. Klis suggests, that Dawkins could miss a third game. Jarvis Moss will start in Ayers place. The Broncos are also without Elvis Dumervil, who was placed on IR before the start of the season.
Jason Hunter has been starting in the place of Dumervil. Hunter and Moss are the only healthy outside linebackers on the roster, but starting inside linebacker Mario Haggan can move outside, where he started last year.
