Broncos get best possible report on Garett Bolles injured ankle

Garett Bolles injured his ankle in the Denver Broncos’ week two win over the Dallas Cowboys. The report back is about as good as it could be…

Denver Broncos rookie left tackle Garett Bolles injured his ankle in the team’s big win over the Dallas Cowboys, and it didn’t look good at all.

Bolles was in a considerable amount of pain after he got rolled up on near the goal line, and he had to be carted off the field.

He was seen sitting on the cart, being consoled by teammates as he was very emotional. There’s no question about how much Bolles loves the game, and how he hates not being able to be there with his teammates.

Bolles’ passion for football has been a huge asset for the Broncos in the first couple of weeks of the season, especially when it comes to the running game. He’s as physical as they come, and he’s proven early on why the Broncos made him their top selection in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The team got probably the best possible news they could have hoped for when the details of Bolles’ further test were revealed:

The Broncos have their bye week on October 8th, so it wouldn’t be a shocker if they waited to bring him back until the team’s week six matchup at home against the New York Giants.

That would put Bolles out this weekend against the Buffalo Bills (the Broncos’ first road game of the season) and then at home the following week against the Oakland Raiders.

The Broncos were pretty vague with an injury to Paxton Lynch in the preseason, also saying he’d be out a ‘couple’ weeks when the reality was, he wouldn’t be ready to contribute until at least week six even as a backup.

Will this be a similar scenario? I certainly hope not. One thing is certain, however, and that’s the fact that the Broncos won’t be without their prized left tackle for the rest of the season, and that’s a huge relief.
