ENGLEWOOD, Colo.– The Broncos are reviewing pass receiver Tim Patrick for a left Achilles injury, Head Train Sean Payton revealed Monday.
Patrick was hauled off the technique area after enduring a non-contact injury throughout a seven-on-seven duration throughout Monday’s training school technique.
“I was watching it directly, because he was running a route and it was something we had corrected earlier,” Payton stated. “It was kind of on air. [He] planted. [I] thought it looked like he slipped, but we’re evaluating his left Achilles. That’s what we think the injury is. We haven’t confirmed it until he gets the MRI. It wasn’t any contact, it was just kind of coming out of a cut.”
Patrick missed out on the whole 2022 period after enduring a knee injury almost a year ago to the day.
“His injury last year was on his right knee, so I think the natural question right away by all of us was, ‘Is it the same leg?'” Payton stated.
Payton stated the Broncos will certainly await the outcome of the MRI prior to supplying a validated medical diagnosis on Patrick’s injury.
“It’s always difficult,” Payton stated. “You guys see it. Especially a guy like that who’s a leader, who’s coming off pretty much an entire year of rehabilitation. So it’s difficult for his teammates [and] for all of us. Maybe, hopefully, we get some good news. But it appears it’s his left Achilles.”
Payton stated he saw Patrick almost on a daily basis in the offseason throughout the pass receiver’s rehabilitation procedure.
“That’s what makes it more difficult,” Payton stated.
Payton stated Patrick had actually been totally gotten rid of to return from his knee injury.
Denver did reclaim right take on Mike McGlinchey on Monday, as he returned after being excused for a number of days as a result of a fatality in the household.
Outdoors linebacker Frank Clark as well as cornerback Riley Moss did not technique.
“Nothing to report, but [it’s a] club decision and we’ll keep you posted,” Payton stated.
