DENVER -- Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton has been taken to the locker room after cutting his right index finger on a helmet in the second quarter against the Chicago Bears.

After his follow-through on an incomplete pass to Correll Buckhalter, Orton appeared to graze a helmet. He immediately glanced down at his bloody finger, held it up for the sideline to see and then trotted off the field.

He was taken to the locker room and all the Broncos would say about it was that he had "an upper extremity injury and was questionable." He didn't return to the game.

Orton was 12-for-16 for 96 yards when he got hurt Sunday night.
