Sun, 28 Jul 2013 12:23:52 -0700

The Denver Broncos fear C Dan Koppen (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament Sunday, July 28.

Broncos | Sign Dan Koppen

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 10:33:54 -0700

The Denver Broncos re-signed C Dan Koppen.

Fantasy Tip: Koppen is a mediocre center who was brought back only because J.D. Walton (ankle) needed a potentially season-ending surgery. Koppen at least brings back familiarity that should benefit this offensive line.
