Broncos Injury Update: Danny Trevathan out with broken knee

By on 8/14/2014 03:35:00 PM

During Tuesday’s practice, Denver Broncos’ LB Danny Trevathan was carted off the field after suffering a left medial tibial impaction fracture on his left knee, leaving him out for a supposed 6-8 weeks.
Fortunately though, Trevathan did not sustain any injuries to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or his medial collateral ligament (MCL).
The Broncos’ official twitter page confirmed the injury and gave a timetable for Trevathan’s return.
For the Broncos, Trevathan was as good as a LB as you could get. In his 2013 season with the Broncos, Trevathan recorded 129 tackles, two sacks, four forced fumbles, three interceptions, 10 passes defended and seven tackles for loss. Replacing a talent like that is going to be hard.

In Trevathan’s place will most likely be a combination of rookies Lamin Barrow (99.5 tackles per season in final two seasons at LSU), Corey Nelson (44.6 tackles and 2.5 sacks per season during final three seasons at Oklahoma) or practice squad LB Brandon Marshall (72.6 tackles, one forced fumble and 1.3 sacks per season during final three seasons while at the University of Nevada).

Despite his injuries, Trevathan hopes he can return to the football field soon, as he reported via his personal twitter account.
