The Denver Broncos are not doing too well this year as they are currently winless.

Part of that could be due to the fact that the team currently has 19 players sitting out because of injuries.

The Broncos have $53.42 million of their payroll on Injured Reserve, by far the most in the league, according to 9News Broncos Insider Mike Klis. There's a huge discrepancy with second most, with the Dallas Cowboys coming in at $33.52 million.
