Fox on Kuper: ‘He’s kind of the leader’ [Football]
October 16, 2012
The Denver Broncos on Monday night welcomed back starting offensive guard Chris Kuper of Anchorage. The team captain had missed the first four games with a broken forearm suffered during training camp. He played last week on special teams to ease his way back onto the field.
“He’s kind of the leader of that room,” Denver head coach John Fox told nfl.com. “He does have a lot of leadership abilities and he’s a good communicator. Up front, there are a lot of things going on. There is a lot made of Peyton as it should be, but [the offensive line] has to get all that information in a noisy, high-pressure environment. So it helps when there is a good comfort level there. Kup helps that.”
