Broncos linebacker Warrick Holdman’s career is basically over according to today’s edition of the Denver Post. The linebacker suffered a spinal cord concussion two weeks ago when he took a fluke hit in practice. He was numb for a few moments, and then got his motion back but ended up in a hospital for tests. He has since been suffering some tingling in his arms, and doctors found a bruise on his spinal column.
Holdman, an 8-year starter for the Bears and Redskins, was expcted to be the starting strong side linebacker on opening day for the Broncos. Now doctors are telling Holdman to sit out the next three months and for more tests to be done before they move forward with any thoughts of him ever taking the field again. “That’s terrible to hear,” Broncos defensive end Kenard Lang said. “You don’t wish that kind of injury for anybody, but especially a guy who is trying to get established with a new organization. That’s rough.”
Losing number one strongside linebackers in nothing new to Denver. During the last minicamp the team had in July, Eddie Moore injured his knee, and he was later released by the team. Now it looks as if Holdman and the team will have to sit down and figure out some sort of injury claim so he can collect some money for what he would have made in the 2007 season. D.D. Lewis, Nate Webster and Louis Green are now left to fight it out for the strongside linebacker spot that seems cursed for the Broncos.
