DENVER — The previous time the Broncos faced the Steelers, Dec. 20 at Heinz Field, safety David Bruton went home with a broken leg and a headache.
Bruton’s leg was fractured in the first quarter, then he took a helmet-to-helmet hit by Steelers offensive lineman Cody Wallace two plays later.
Wallace was fined for the hit, but Bruton’s teammates said that wasn’t enough. Fellow Broncos safety Darian Stewart said the hit still irks him.
“It’s not going to be anything as far as cheap or anything,” Stewart said. “We’re going to get him between the lines, between the whistles. He’s going to be sore after the game, that’s how I see it. He comes out on a screen, he better not come at [me]. I’m cutting him. That’s where I’m at with it. You got me mad right now just thinking about it.”
