Elvis Dumervil looks headed for injured reserve

The massive amount of injuries in Denver could make carrying injured linebacker Elvis Dumervil on the roster a luxury the team can no longer afford.

Dumervil tore his pectoral muscle and there was some hope the team would keep him on the roster for a possible return in December.  But NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi says Dumervil will hit injured reserve on Saturday.

The injury to right tackle Ryan Harris — who the Denver Post calls “questionable to doubtful” for Week One — was the latest setback for Denver’s depleted roster.

UPDATE: Dumervil confirmed the news on his Twitter page.
