An MRI has confirmed that defensive tackle Ty Warren has a torn triceps, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports.
Warren, 30, suffered the injury during Monday’s practice. Broncos vice president John Elway, general manager Brian Xanders and head coach John Fox are discussing the options and have not given up on the possibility that Warren could return at some point this season, Klis adds.
Last summer, the Broncos did not immediately place Pro Bowl linebacker (now defensive end) Elvis Dumervil on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. That transaction took place in September.
A 2003 first-round pick out of Texas A&M by the New England Patriots, Warren missed all of last season with a hip injury. After being released by the Patriots, Warren signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Broncos.
In other Broncos injury news, defensive tackle Marcus Thomas will miss the remainder of the preseason with a strained pectoral muscle.
