Report: Denver Broncos Lose Another Player For Season With Torn ACL

Denver Broncos have been dealt yet another injury blow.

Just days after losing wide receiver Tim Patrick for the season with a torn ACL, inside linebacker, Jonas Griffith, has been hit with devastating news during training camp practice, as he also suffered a torn ACL in his knee.

The injury will force him to undergo season-ending surgery, ruling him out for the entire 2023 NFL season.

Last year, Griffith was a prominent starter at inside linebacker, impressing with 46 tackles and an interception in nine games.

The team had high hopes for his contribution in the upcoming season, but now they will have to rely on their other linebackers to step up and fill the void left by his unfortunate absence.

Griffith's journey with the Broncos has been solid since he joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2021.

Despite facing setbacks with injuries, he quickly made a name for himself, becoming a starter in eight out of nine games last season. The planned role for him as the No. 4 inside linebacker and his involvement in special teams were set to further solidify his impact on the team.

Now, that will be on hold till at least 2024.

Over his two-year career, the 26-year-old has amassed 92 total tackles, one fumble recovery, one interception, and one pass defended across 22 games played. Photo Credit: Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports
