Orton says he’s sore but not injured

ENGLEWOOD — Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton says he’s sore but not injured and insisted, “I don’t have a dead arm,” when asked about his poor play the last two weeks.

Orton has gone from a prolific passer to a pedestrian one in losses at Kansas City and Arizona sandwiched around the firing of his biggest booster, Josh McDaniels, who was sent packing amid the team’s worst skid in four decades and the Spygate II videotaping scandal.

Orton suffered bruised ribs against the Cardinals on Sunday but stayed in the game, leaving rookie Tim Tebow on the sideline.

Interim coach Eric Studesville reiterated today that he’s sticking with Orton as his starter when the Broncos (3-10) visit Oakland (6-7) this weekend.
