Tim Patrick tore his ACL

The Broncos feared that wide receiver Tim Patrick suffered a serious knee injury when he was hurt during Tuesday’s practice and that fear has been realized.

Mike Klis of KUSA was the first to report that an MRI showed Patrick tore his ACL. He will miss the entire 2022 season as a result.

It’s the third straight season that a Broncos wideout has gone down with a torn ACL. Courtland Sutton was injured early in the 2020 season and KJ Hamler went down a few weeks into last season.

Patrick didn’t even make it to Week 1, which will give Hamler and other wideouts a chance to earn playing time next to Sutton and Jerry Jeudy in the offense this season. Patrick will have to put his own hopes to connect with Russell Wilson on ice until 2023.

  1. That’s too bad. Tim Patrick is a very good receiver. He tends to go unnoticed because his qbs have been dreadful. I would have predicted a major jump in production for him with Wilson. Hopefully he has a full and quick recovery

  2. Denver wasn’t going to do anything this season anyway. Is it really a huge deal they lost a guy that had 50 something catches and 5 touchdowns??? If that’s a huge loss to you then you’re probably not a very good team

  3. Broncos looking at a third place finish, just ahead of the Raiders in last place.

    Chiefs and Chargers are the two teams to worry about in that division.

  4. still doesn’t change the 2022 results.

    Chiefs 14-3
    Chargers 12-5
    Broncos 9-8
    Raiders 5-12

  5. Tim Patrick was always good for maybe 3 breakout games….hope he fully recovers

  6. The three worst letters in the Preseason; hate to see it for any player irrespective of your favorite team.

    50 some catches and 5 TDs are pretty good when Drew Lock and Bridgewater are your QBs.

  8. The Broncos will be fine, just wait for week 6 and the Broncos are 3-3 and the Raiders are 2-4.

  9. I was looking forwarded to watching him break out now that he FINALLY has an actual QB. Being a Broncos fan has gotten me used to disappointment over the last 5 years, unfortunately.

  10. Love the donko fans thinking the Raiders are going to be 5-12 lol. Davante Adams, Renfrow, Waller, Jacobs, Moreau, Drake. Yeah sounds like a pretty good offense capable of easily putting up points.

    Crosby and Chandler Jones is a pretty nasty pash rush too. I think the Raiders were 10-7 and made the playoffs last year. Despite the Gruden and Ruggs fiascos. Wilson’s best years are behind him and Denver hasn’t done a thing in years now, we’ll see what happens

  11. This is terrible to see so early before pre season.

    The Raiders are going to take a huge step back this season. Wasting everything on Devante Adams and having no offensive line to protect a 3rd string QB is going to yield bad results. Especially when every team in your division drastically improved compared to the failing Raiders.

    Broncos will be picking in the top 10 of the 2023 draft.

    You mean that the Seahawks will be picking in the top 10 of the 2023 draft with Denver’s 1st round pick from the Wilson trade right?…..

    Justin Fields beat the Raiders at home…….

    LOL!

    Yep. But don’t leave out the details. It was two days after the e-mail story dropped. It was the day before the Gruden resignation. I think there was more going on than football that weekend.

    And, the ultimate detail. They went to the playoffs.

  15. Tim Patrick is a classic overachiever. He capitalized on every opportunity given to him. Now it’s someone else’s opportunity to capitalize. Seth Williams was on the bubble. With Montrell Williams having a standout camp, the numbers game had Seth on the outside looking in. Seth is a big bodied receiver though and could get more reps outside now in Patrick’s place. With Russell at QB, our WR depth is a bonus. We no longer need super star performances at every position. But enough is enough.

  16. I’m a Chiefs fan, but sorry to that. Patrick is a good receiver and feel bad for the player. Would rather beat a team at full strength than having missing weapons.

  17. Wilson is putting up his regular passing yards and someone is going to catch those yards.

  18. Too bad for the Broncos. But they have KJ Hamler coming back, maybe he fills Patrick’s shoes to some extent. I still like the Broncos to win more games than the Raiders. I don’t think the Raiders will win more than 6 or 7 games.

  19. Not a fan, and I don’t have a dog in the fight. However, the Broncos should team up Wilson with OBJ.
