Report: Broncos fear broken ankle for Garett Bolles, hope it’s high ankle sprain

The Broncos fear a broken left ankle for rookie Garett Bolles, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, but they are hoping it’s a high-ankle sprain. Bolles’ wife, Natalie, tweeted Sunday night, “It looks like a high ankle sprain. Possible foot injury, but the X-ray was inconclusive. MRI tomorrow.”

The starting left tackle left in a walking boot, with a single crutch.

“I’m good, boss,” Bolles told Mike Klis of Denver’s 9News. “Got Buffalo next week.”

Bolles’ left leg got twisted underneath him on Jamaal Charles‘ 5-yard run to the Dallas 3 in the third quarter. The Broncos scored two plays later to take a 28-10 lead in their 42-17 victory.

Veteran Donald Stephenson replaced Bolles.

    i would say the kid is a rookie and no one knows anything about him
    other than he is probably overrated

  3. Losing your starting left tackle in a division with likes of Joey Bosa, Khalil Mack, and Justin Houston is not a minor setback. Denver defense will keep them in games for sure but the offense will slow down for sure.

  4. And Bill Belichick was fined for cheating at his profession as a head coach. Tom Brady was fined for cheating at his profession as a player. Doesn’t get any lower than that.

    goodell was the commissioner for the two incidents and cheating movements (framejobs) and tagaliabue was the honorable commissioner for when elway accepted
    deferred payments to help cheat the cap.

    the educated public knows goodell is corrupt and tagliabue was not.

    when you lie in federal court and get caught so many times like goodell has, your credibility is shot.

    have a nice day

  6. Leave it to the haters to dig back 20 years to find dirt on Denver. BTW, they only an afoul of the salary cap two times, not three. They never were fined for a first round draft choice or $1M like NE. Let if go haters. You look really lame.

    Your constant bitterness on this board is just plain sad. So very sad.

    You’ve sunken to a new low. Your hate is disgusting.

  9. The educated football fan knows the Patriots have been caught and punished for cheating. Cheating that has rendered the results and stats as useless. The Patriots have betrayed the true football fan by abusing the public’s trust and confidence in the game. That’s on them, not Goodell.

  10. You know what is crazy? I dropped in to read about a Bronco player and see that the normal Pats groupies are trolling a Bronc vine. It’s evident they are already nervous about their team’s visit in November. They should be. Today was nice and dominate at a Mile High! Get well Garett.

    the difference is the commissioner.

  12. This Bronco fan dreads the thought of Stephenson at left tackle all year. If you were a D-coordinator, how would you play it?

    Siemian was already scrambling to his right half the time. Poor kid can only take so much punishment.

    I’d say trade Roby for a solid left tackle, maybe with Dallas. They clearly need a strong d-back and have good linemen.

  13. That’s right, it is the Commissioner who is players and coaches accountable. Something Paul T never did. Nothing made that clearer when he nailed the Saint’s coaches but let the players go because it wasn’t their fault. Same guy that let Ray Lewis get away with a fine!

    Let it go son…..you embarrassing other Pats fans with your constant whining.

    As for Bolles, the kid looked like he was in some excruciating pain when they carted him off the field. Never like to see anybody get injured. Hope he recovers soon.

    It’s fun seeing how Denver gives New England fans little brother syndrome.

    Denver? How on earth would any Boston fan be jealous of Denver sports in any way?

    Soup du Jour team, blown out 43-8 in a Super Bowl (amongst many others with Elway), with Arena League unis, etc.

    lol

    When you look that goofy in a sports uniform, I am pretty certain no one cares about your team.

    Your team is very thin at the moment. Teams will feast vs the D Line with the run and attack your Tackles on the edge.

    Cupcaking through the early part of your schedule is now over.

  17. [Denver] only an afoul of the salary cap two times, not three. They never were fined $1M like NE.

    =====================================

    Two times makes it acceptable. Good to know.

    Also, Denver was fined nearly $2 million in all for their salary infractions by a much more lenient commissioner who didn’t play favorites.

    For an example favoritism by Goodell, compare the penalty the Jets received for tampering with what the Chiefs received. Both incidents took place around the same time, but the team that the commissioner used to work for got a much lighter penalty.
