The Denver Broncos have suffered some big losses this season via injury, and the last thing they needed was another one at the linebacker position.
Danny Trevathan, a 2012 sixth round pick out of Kentucky who has graded out as Pro Football Focus’ number one outside linebacker (4-3) vs. the run this season, was carted off the field at practice.
However, there is no need to worry anymore, as Trevathan’s MRI came back negative and the Broncos think he could still play on Sunday. He’s considered day-to-day at this point, but it appears as though the Broncos dodged another bullet fired by the injury bug.
Another player of note on the injury report is cornerback Champ Bailey, who is nursing an injured foot and has missed more time than probably any other point in his career.
It would be great to see the Pro Bowler back out on the field as the Broncos get set to take on the Dallas Cowboys and get his first game action of the season.
Four games is too long to go without seeing no. 24 out on the field for the Broncos. Bailey has still been limited in practice and will probably be considered questionable until further notice.
Wide receiver Eric Decker also “tweaked” an ankle injury, but it is nothing serious and he expects to be ready to go for Sunday’s game.
For the Cowboys, receiver Miles Austin remains out with a hamstring injury, and his status for Sunday’s game is iffy at best at this point.
