In theory, Ty Warren was exactly the kind of run-stopper the Broncos needed.
Unfortunately, that never translated to the field.
Warren, who didn’t play a down the previous two seasons because of hip and triceps injuries, will likely miss another one.
Broncos coach John Fox said Warren re-tore the triceps last night, and would likely be out for the season, according to the Denver Post.
Warren didn’t return after leaving in the first half last night against Pittsburgh, with what was initially diagnosed as a sprained elbow.
It turned out to be much worse.
Warren had gotten through an entire preseason for the first time since 2009, and had looked good after taking an offseason pay cut.
The former Patriots first-rounder missed just seven games in seven seasons in New England.
