The Broncos it seems are getting more banged up by the day as they get set for Monday’s opener against the Tennessee Titans.
First is the massive loss of team captain Von Miller, and now it’s being reported that one of their leading wide outs, Courtland Sutton, has suffered a shoulder injury.
Sutton was evaluated for a shoulder injury, NFL Network’s James Palmer reported Thursday, and it revealed he suffered an AC joint sprain, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Sutton went for a ball and sustained a shoulder injury during practice that forced him to leave. Sutton never returned to practice and was officially listed as limited in the team’s daily injury report.
The Broncos’ No. 1 receiver and the favorite target of second-year quarterback Drew Lock, Sutton had a breakout 2019 season with 72 receptions for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns in his second pro campaign.
Set to start opposite rookie first-rounder Jerry Jeudy, Sutton is the centerpiece of the Broncos passing game. With rookie K.J. Hamler already dealing with a hamstring injury, losing Sutton would be a blow to the Broncos’ depth, but more so a huge loss overall to a burgeoning offense looking to find its game and hopeful of a promising season.
