"Obviously we'll miss O.D.," head coach Gary Kubiak said of Daniels. "He's a big part of what we do offensively. We've got challenges offensively."
As for Griffin, Kubiak said the rookie has played primarily on special teams, but he'll soon "play a lot of football" and "he’s got to play well.”
To take the roster spot, the team signed tight end
Byrne was on the Texans practice squad last January during the playoffs, and was cut by the team during the preseason. Kubiak said Byrne could be ready to play as soon as this Sunday for the Week 6 game with Saint Louis.
“He’s kind of a line of scrimmage guy," Kubiak said. "We know he can do some of that for us. The biggest thing getting him back was the fact that we know he can get ready real quick. He knows our system from camp, so it’s not a big adjustment."
