Training camp injuries are an absolute nightmare. Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick fell during practice and was carted off the field.
This is only the sixth practice Denver Broncos training camp, and we may already have terrible injury news. At practice, wide receiver Tim Patrick was carried off the field and helped to the training room.
This is terrible news.
Tim Patrick just signed last year and is one of the best offensive tackles for the Denver Broncos going into 2019.
A former undrafted player, Patrick worked his way up from the practice squad to the starting lineup.
He became an integral part of the team and everyone was excited to see what he could do with Russell Wilson at the helm.
Unfortunately, we do not have an idea of the severity of the injury at this time. We’ve seen players get kicked out only to miss a week or two, and we’ve seen other situations where kicking out means a lost season.
It’s impossible to know until tests are done, and that will come with time.
However, there is nothing good about being kicked off the field.
We wish all the best to Tim Patrick, who has become a fan favorite, and rightfully so.
What will the Denver Broncos do if Tim Patrick misses significant time?
The Denver Broncos just saw KJ Hamler back from the PUP (physically unable to perform) list yesterday, but he is expected to be limited until the start of the regular season as he returns from a knee/hip injury last year.
Looking at the depth chart as a wholethe Broncos’ depth doesn’t seem to be bad at wide receiver anyway, but Patrick’s presence on the outside has been huge for everyone.
Guaranteed to make the list:
- Courtland Sutton
- Jerry Judy
- K. J. Hamler
Battle for places (main contenders)
- Kendall Hinton
- Tyree Cleveland
- Montrell Washington
Struggling for spots (strong OTAs/camp required)
- Trey Quinn
- Travis Fulgham
- Seth Williams
There are certainly options the Denver Broncos could consider as far as free agency and trades go. We will study them soon and have already looked the idea of signing veteran Will Fuller.
We will have more information on this situation as it develops. For now, prayers and best wishes to Tim Patrick.
