Report: Early tests on Danny Trevathan’s knee encouraging, MRI results to come

The Broncos saw linebacker Danny Trevathan carted off the field at practice on Tuesday, but early reports are that he avoided a serious injury.

Coach John Fox said that Trevathan suffered “what appears to be a left knee injury” when he went down during 11-on-11 drills. Word from practice was that Trevathan could not put weight on his left leg after getting hurt, with Fox saying that the team would wait to see what the results of tests were before determining any future actions.

While Fox was noncommittal about Trevathan’s status, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports that the first round of tests did not reveal any significant damage. Broncos linebacker Lamin Barrow also said, via Andrew Mason of the Broncos website, that Fox passed along similar word to the team about Trevathan’s early tests.

Encouraging as that may be, Trevathan’s fate will have a lot to do with what the results of an MRI show doctors. If all is well, the Broncos will be able to breathe a little easier with one of last year’s top defenders still on track to play a major role this year.

    Congratulations on winning the Super Bowl last year Broncos!

    The Seahawks win doesn’t count because they used PEDs and cheated to win.

    Peyton Manning 2x Super Bowl MVP!

    I just said that he was the best defensive player on the defense, and he’s hurt.

    if it’s not serious, why couldn’t he put any weight on it? i’ve heard of players being able to walk after major ACL-type injuries, but never heard of them NOT being able to walk and the injuries turning out to be minor.

    Too bad this whole blow hard ‘bought team’ doesn’t suffer significant injuries…they represent all that is wrong with professional sports.
