There are likely a few fingers crossed for linebacker Danny Trevathan at Broncos camp right now.
Trevathan was carted off the field during 11-on-11 drills at Tuesday’s practice. Trevathan was attended to by trainers on the field and then carted off for further evaluation. Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Trevathan could not put any weight on his left leg before riding off.
Trevathan became a starter last year in his second NFL season and turned in an excellent campaign for the Broncos. He led the team with 129 tackles and added two sacks, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and 10 passes defensed as one of the AFC champion’s defensive cornerstones.
The first details on Trevathan’s injury could come when Broncos coach John Fox addresses the media later in the day. If Trevathan is out of the lineup, the Broncos will likely turn to Brandon Marshall as the first choice to replace him as a starter.
