Broncos' o-line proves plenty durable

A lot of the credit for the Denver Broncos' top-ranked rushing offense is given to the style of play of quarterback Tim Tebow and to the resurgent Willis McGahee.

But one reason for the Broncos' rushing success that cannot be overlooked is the durability and performance of the Denver offensive line.

Two of the five starters - center J.D. Walton and left guard Zane Beadles - played every offensive snap the Broncos were on the field in 2011, says Mike Klis of the Denver Post. Left tackle Ryan Clady was close, playing 99.8 percent of the offensive snaps, while right tackle Orlando Franklin was on the field for 98.2 percent of the plays. Right guard Chris Kuper was on his way to joining Walton and Beadles at 100 percent, but Franklin rolled up on his ankle in the regular-season finale, leaving him at 93.6 percent.
