MRI shows no serious damage to Dumervil’s shoulder

Broncos Chargers Football AP

As good as yesterday was, the Broncos got better news Monday.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, an MRI on the left shoulder of defensive end Elvis Dumervil revealed no tears.

Dumervil could still be questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers, but the injury isn’t thought to be of the long-term variety.

Dumervil was injured Sunday on a sack-strip of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. He tried to return to the game for one play, but didn’t last.

Getting him back this week would be a huge boost, as a win over the Chargers would create a de facto four-game lead with six to play, considering the tiebreaker edge.

    Keep him on he bench unless he is 100%. We can beat SD without him. He’s to important to risk further injury.

    You better hope the Broncos don’t feel the same way or they will overlook the Chargers and be surprised. Even though the Broncos beat the Chargers already, they had to come back from a 24 point deficit.

    With manning leading and in complete control of the Broncos, they will look past no team. Every game is treated the same and nothing will be taken for granted.

    “Even though the Broncos beat the Chargers already, they had to come back from a 24 point deficit.”

    True, but since then, Phillip Rivers has been outdueled by Brandon Weeden of the Browns and Josh Freeman of the Buccaneers.

    I’m still picking Peyton Manning and the Broncos to come out on top.

    Is it the shoulder that he leans out of his hooptie and road rages with? I’d hate to see him lose that ability…

    That’s unfortunate.
