Danny Trevathan carted off at Broncos practice

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.

    Why would they replace him with a receiver that doesn’t play for the Broncos anymore? They must be crazy.

    Brandon Marshall?

    But in all seriousness… huge loss for the Broncs if this is long-term.

    I hope he will be ok, but as a charger fan I won’t miss him on the other side. He can cause problems. Sorry dude get better..

    Brandon Marshall is also a LB for Denver. Pretty common name.

    …and the Denver Post’s next excuse for the Broncos losing the SB is born.

    I doubt the bears would trade Brandon Marshall and even if they did he wouldn’t convert to LB. Just mentioning a player on another team like that is tampering I believe.

    This is a major loss. Danny was/ is a legit impact starter.

    That’s just too bad for the broncos.

    Man, if the injury is serious-it’s a big Blow to that Broncos D. Was kinda the unsung hero(along w/ PotRoast,C.Harris&others) for that Defense last season. As an outside perspective on the Bronco’s, IMO he is a crucial player in that D. Hope he’s ok, and it’s nothing too serious/season ending. Good Luck & Get Better soon man.

    It’s always sad when a player gets injured before the real games even start.

    Denver will start its long, slow decline this year. Injuries will cause them to miss the playoffs. Then Peyton will get hurt. He will play another couple years but will never be the same player. After that they will part company with him and gut the roster and start over. Ten years from now they may be relevant again.

    I imagine Lamin Barrow would probably get the first look at replacing him. He’s more WIL than Mike anyhow.

    Thinnest unit on the team. Figures.

    My favorite Bronco. Hope he is okay. Maybe a deep bruise.

    tough loss, but that’s just how the russian roulette of injuries is playing out this year

  15. atthemurph says: Aug 12, 2014 2:11 PM

    Peyton’s last year and the hits are already starting to come. He won’t make it past this year, if he can even finish this year. I watched a small number of plays of the preseason game v. Seattle and he’s already throwing knuckle balls, floaters and fluttering ducks.

    Only going to get worse.
