The Denver Broncos’ rash of training camp injuries continued Friday.
The Denver Post is reporting that linebacker Jarvis Moss fractured his hand and will likely be out for two weeks. Moss stepped into the starting lineup after star pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil tore his pectoral muscle. Dumervil, who led the NFL with 17 sacks last season, is expected to be out for four months.
Moss, a very unproductive 2007 first-round draft pick, was given the chance to be the starter in Dumervil’s absence. Now this. Moss will get the chance to be ready for the regular season, however, he is a player who needs all the repetitions he can get with the first team.
Robert Ayers, a first-round pick in 2009, will now be Denver’s top pass-rusher. He was not impressive as a rookie.
Denver is the most-injured team in the NFL. Star left tackle Ryan Clady is out with a knee injury and he hopes to return in September. Top running backs Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and Correll Buckhalter (back) were both hurt Sunday. They both should return this month.
