As Chris Mortensen has reported Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph will not be at next week's Senior Bowl because of a foot injury. The Broncos coaching staff will direct the North team during next week's practices and the game. Rudolph threw for over 4,000 yards in each of his last two seasons and topped 3,700 yards passing in each of his last three years as a starter. Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee is expected to take Rudolph's spot.

Some in the league say Raiders and Chargers are easier fits in the AFC West to potentially lose home games for a London trip than either Denver or Kansas City because both the Raiders and Chargers are in temporary situations until their new stadiums are ready. But Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was one of the NFL's earliest proponents of overseas games and has always wanted the Broncos in that loop.

Two AFC West teams are headed to London for a game in the 2018 season, but the Broncos are not one of them as the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers will each play in one of the three games -- the Raiders against the Seahawks in Week 6 and the Chargers against the Titans in Week 7 or Week 8. After an 5-11 finish the Broncos figure to see a cutback in their national TV appearances as well in '18 unless they make a splash at quarterback in free agency or the draft.

And.... the Broncos have filled five of the six staff openings created when they fired six assistant coaches last week. Zach Azzanni will coach wide receivers. Azzanni also becomes the second assistant coach -- new running backs coach Curtis Modkins is the other -- Vance Joseph has hired who was on former Broncos coach John Fox's staff with the Bears last season.

With the Broncos' official announcement Tom McMahon has been hired to be special teams coordinator, the Broncos have replaced four of the six assistant coaches they fired last week: Special teams-McMahon (replaces Brock Olivo). Offensive line-Sean Kugler (replaces Jeff Davidson). Running backs-Curtis Modkins (replaces Eric Studesville). Defensive backs-Greg Williams (replaces Johnnie Lynn). The Broncos still have openings for a linebackers coach and a wide receivers coach.

Former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee took to Twitter Tuesday to congratulate former Colts special teams coordinator Tom McMahon for taking the same job with the Broncos. McMahon will replace Brock Olivo, who was one of six assistant coaches coach Vance Joseph fired after a 5-11 finish. McMahon had been with the Colts since 2013. McMahon has also worked for the Chiefs and Rams in his career.

The Senior Bowl has not yet officially added Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen to the list of "accepted invitations," and the North and South rosters aren't expected to formally be released until Jan. 17. But as it stands now the eight quarterbacks on hand are expected to be Allen, Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma), Luke Falk (Washington State), Mason Rudolph (Oklahoma State), Kurt Benkert (Virginia), Kyle Lauletta (Richmond), Brandon Silvers (Troy), and Mike White (Western Kentucky). The Broncos will coach the North team.
