Broncos' Camp Littered with Injuries

Surprisingly, the progress of Denver's first round pick Tim Tebow has not been the talk of Broncos camp so far this month. Instead, it has been all the major injuries that have hit Josh McDaniels' team.

First it was the league sack leader from '09, Elvis Dumervil, who sacked opposing quarterbacks 17 times, who went down with a major injury and may miss the entire season. Dumervil's torn pectoral muscle, suffered during Wednesday's practice, will keep him out of Denver's lineup for quite some time.
Today, newly acquired running back LenDale White, who signed a two-year deal with the team on Wednesday, left practice early. His possible injury doesn't look serious, but it's not good to see either.

But the biggest news of the day in Denver is Jarvis Moss' broken hand. Moss, Dumervil's replacement at outside linebacker, is expected to miss at least two weeks. He should recover well from the injury but he will certainly still be limited when he does return to practice.

What Moss' early exit did do for the Broncos defense is give some other guys such as Akin Ayodele and Mario Haggan some reps at the position.

We will surely be keeping an eye on McDaniels' defense over the next few weeks and see how the other linebackers adjust to the early injuries.
