Broncos both thrilled, concerned about their D

DENVER (AP) - The Denver Broncos are feeling really good about their pass rush and more than a little nervous about their run defense.

Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil combined for 3½ sacks in the Broncos' 23-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday night, but the Broncos lost their best tackler in weakside linebacker D.J.

Williams has a dislocated right elbow that could sideline him up to a month, although he tweeted Sunday that he'll "b back n no time" because he's a fast healer. Bunkley said after the game his right knee wasn't seriously injured.

The Broncos already are thin at defensive tackle with Ty Warren (triceps surgery) and Marcus Thomas (chest muscle) out.
