On the first day of training camp, the Denver Broncos saw Todd Davis go down to injury. It should provide a chance for others to get added reps.
On the first day of training camp, the Denver Broncos were hit with an injury to a player that started at inside linebacker. Todd Davis has been ruled out for the next three to four weeks with a partial calf muscle tear.
He suffered the injury early on in day one of camp and was carted off the field. Broncos Country held their breaths when the cart came out to transport Todd Davis off the field. However, the good sign showed that he was able to walk into the facilities.
His injury means that he will miss the Hall of Fame game, although it remains to be seen if we see starters in that game for a long period of time. He should return around either during the week the Denver Broncos play the Seattle Seahawks or San Francisco 49ers.
The injury provides the chance for some inside linebackers to get some added reps. With Todd Davis out, Josey Jewell will likely take over as the top dog for the inside linebackers.
Three names I am keeping an eye on are A.J. Johnson, Joseph Jones, and Keishawn Bierria. We saw these three men in some game action last season, mostly on special teams.
I believe if one of these three can show some solid play with Todd Davis out, I would imagine the Denver Broncos will ease him back once he is healthy.
Todd Davis had a really solid season in 2018. The last thing the Denver Broncos need is to start the season on the wrong foot. It is important to have experience wherever it is needed.
Wishing the best for Todd Davis in his recovery. Hopefully we will see him on the field before the preseason ends.
