The Denver Broncos practice today was one of the worst practices ever. It started off with three fights between the offense and the defense. One of which, got the whole team going. After that Coach John Fox had to call practice to a stop, so he could talk to the team. Then it just got worse.
Danny Trevathan was drafted in the sixth round in 2012. His rookie year he did surprisingly well. Well enough to earn him the starting WLB spot in 2013. He took it and ran, putting up great numbers. In practice today, he hurt himself. It was bad enough for the cart to come and take him off the field. He was unable to put any weight onto his left knee. The injury put a damper on the intensity of the day. Eventually, practice was called to an end early.
After practice when John Fox spoke about the injury, he had this to say,“Danny Trevathan left w/ what appears to be a knee injury … We’ll wait and see what the results are.” Within the next couple days, most likely later today or tomorrow, more should become known about the seriousness of the injury. In fact, as I type this, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports, “Preliminary tests encouraging regarding Danny Trevathans knee more tests to be done.”
Now among us Predominately Orange writers, there is some dispute about how the impact of Trevathan being hurt will affect the defense. But, either way, if Trevathan misses serious time Brandon Marshall needs to answer the call.
UPDATE: Turns out it is a broken kneecap for Trevathan. Out 6-8 weeks. Should be back in time for Arizona Cardinals week 5 or New York Jets week 6.
