DENVER -- John Elway will trade in the gridiron for the greens when the 39th U.S. Senior Open comes to Colorado Springs in 2018. The Denver Broncos boss was named honorary chairman of the tournament at the Broadmoor Golf Club on Tuesday.The guys that are playing in this tournament are the guys that I looked up to when I was growing up, Elway said. To be involved, its truly an honor.The ever-competitive Elway also hinted he might try to qualify for the tournament itself.I might give it a shot, said Elway, a 1.9-handicap golfer, well under the requisite 3.4.To make that a reality, hed have to improve his putting.But Im like every other amateur, too, you dont go to the putting green, you go to the driving range, right? Elway said. If I went to the putting green it might help a little bit.Elway, 56, took up golf during the springs of his Hall of Fame playing career and really refined his game after retiring in 1999. But he hasnt had as much time to hit the greens ever since rejoining his beloved Broncos as their chief front office executive in 2010.He doesnt get to play much before the NFL draft in April but sneaks in as many rounds as he can before training camp begins in late July, then hits the greens now and then during September and October.Although he doesnt really have the chance to work on his game anymore, he appreciates the games difficulties.Its a game that you can play forever and I think that its a game that is different every single day. Its a game that you can never, ever get your arms around every time, Elway said. Its a different game day in and day out, so its a tremendous challenge.And I think that most importantly it gives us ex-athletes a chance to really compete.Elway guided the Broncos to all three of their Super Bowl titles, two as their quarterback and last years as their general manager and vice president of football operations.His golf resume includes two Colorado Senior Open appearances and he is past president of Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver.The 2018 U.S. Senior Open will be held at the Broadmoor Golf Clubs East Course from June 28-July 1.Those are greens that Ive never really seen anywhere else, Elway said. I think the last time I played there, I think I hit 18 greens and shot 85. It has my number. But its a beautiful setting and a great, great golf course.Elway, who counts as his golf highlight his first hole-in-one that came on his 40th birthday, said its probably easier to covert a fourth-and-2 on the road than to sink a 3-foot putt with the quietude of the course.I will say Id probably have more confidence on the fourth-and-2, Elway said. Especially at the Broadmoor.---Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Robert McClain Jersey . -- Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover.

SEATTLE -- Washington middle linebacker Azeem Victor is expected to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery for a broken lower right leg, coach Chris Petersen announced Monday, the second major injury loss for the Huskies defense in recent weeks.There is no timeline yet for Victors recovery but the expectation is the junior wont be back this season. Petersen was noncommittal when asked if there was any chance Victor could recover in time for a bowl game.Its OK. Its not going to be a real long-term thing, Petersen said. Its a bone and those things will heal quickly. I dont know exactly what the timeline is but its probably as good as it could be in terms of all those things.Victor was injured in the second quarter of No. 7 Washingtons 26-13 loss to Southern California on Saturday. Victor was in on the tackle of USCs Justin Davis on a running play, but immediately came up hobbling. He was on the field for several minutes getting tended to by medical personnel, who put an air cast on Victors leg on the field before he was taken off on a cart.Victor leads Washington with 68 tackles this season. He was regarded as a potential second-day pick in the NFL draft if he left after his junior season.So really when it was all said and done it was probably more positive than we were first thinking, Petersen said. Sometimes when you go into surgery and all that its all this kind of stuff but it was pretty straightforward from what I understand.Its the second major loss for the Huskies on that side of the ball after sack leader Joe Mathis underwent surgery earliier this month for a foot injury.dddddddddddd. Mathis is also expected to be out for the season, although The Seattle Times reported last week that Mathis is hopeful of possibly being able to return for a bowl game.Petersen joked Monday that no team other than Alabama could have the depth on the roster to withstand losing two top defensive players and not have any drop off.I dont know if anyone does that. Maybe Alabama. I dont know, he said. I think every coach in America, for the most part, you get a really good player, you lose them, you might have a really good young player but theyre just not there. I dont know if you ever get there.Redshirt freshman D.J. Beavers is listed as the starter with Victor out. Beavers stepped in after Victors injury on Saturday and finished with six tackles. But he also had some of his inexperience exposed by USC.Linebacker is one area where Washington still lacks experienced depth. Along with Beavers, the other options appear to be freshman Brandon Wellington and sophomore Ben Burr-Kirven.I think he filled in pretty well, Petersen said of Beavers. He made some tackles, played aggressive, played tough. Its hard when you lose a player like Azeem for sure but its not like `We have no chance type thing. He was right there playing physical like a linebacker should. Hes had a lot of good reps throughout the season and now hes going to have a lot more.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
