Broncos LB Dumervil leaves practice with a chest injury


Recommended Posts


Denver Broncos linebacker Elvis Dumervil cut practice short Wednesday night, leaving the field holding his right arm. The Denver Post reported the injury is in his right pectoral muscle.

Dumervil, the league's reigning sacks leader who signed a five-year, $58.3 million contract extension last month, didn't return to practice. The Post said Dumervil hurt his chest in a one-on-one pass drill against Tyler Polumbus, and that Dumervil will be evaluated Thursday by the team's medical staff.

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said after practice that he had no update on Dumervil.

Dumervil had a team-record 17 sacks and was selected to the Pro Bowl last season.

For now it sounds like Denver's Elvis Dumervil will miss at least four months, but it could well be the season. Crushing blow for Broncos. 1 minute ago via ÜberTwitter

For a defense that seemingly collapsed after such an amazing start, this indeed is a MASSIVE blow to Denver's success. He was honestly the only real consistent pass-rushing threat that defense had last year. Good thing he just got paid . . . because if this was his contract year he would be BLOWN.

Wow. I have two comments.

1) I somehow totally missed him getting that huge contract extension.

2) This is a BIG blow to them. Just another reason why I think the Broncos will finish with a top 5 draft pick this season. Which, of course, McEgo will use on a complete bust/reach.
