Broncos safety David Bruton was hospitalized after suffering a head injury during Saturday night’s game.
The Denver Post reports that Bruton left the game in the fourth quarter and was later taken out of the locker room on a gurnee and taken by ambulance to a Denver hospital.
Bruton stayed down after making a tackle, tried to get back up and then went back to the ground while the Broncos’ medical staff attended to him. He did eventually walk off the field, with help from the medical staff.
Josina Anderson reports that Bruton was unable to answer routine questions like how he got to the game and couldn’t complete routine tasks like repeating numbers backward during his post-injury evaluation.
In May we wrote about Bruton as one of the players making the most of the lockout: Bruton worked as a substitute teacher in the school district where he grew up, saying he was thankful to have some extra time to help kids in his community. We’re hoping he makes a full recovery.
