CENTENNIAL, Colo. (KDVR) — Update: 3:05 p.m. 8/2: An MRI has confirmed that Tim Patrick tore his ACL and will be out for the remainder of the season, per FOX31 sports reporter Myck Miller.
Patrick is the third wide receiver to tear his ACL for the Broncos in as many consecutive seasons, following Courtland Sutton in 2020 and KJ Hamler in 2021.
Damarea Crockett, who is listed as the fourth-string running back on the Broncos depth chart, also tore his ACL in the same practice and is done for the season. He tweeted that he will be back stronger than ever.
Original Story: Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick apparently injured his knee after catching a ball during team drills on Tuesday, and left the field on a cart.
According to multiple reports and KOA News Radio Reporter Brandon Krisztal, the defender on Patrick did not make any contact with the wide receiver. Krisztal reports multiple players rushed over to Patrick and took a knee around the veteran.
Krisztal reports Patrick was carted off quickly and a trainer was holding his leg to support his right knee.
“It breaks your heart,” said Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett on the injury Tuesday. Hackett said the team is evaluating Patrick’s knee.
This is a developing news story and will be updated as soon as more news of Patrick’s injury becomes available.
