Wide receiver Bennie Fowler has a fractured elbow, out for awhile

Tough news for Bennie.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

According to 9NEWS Denver's Mike Klis, Denver Broncos wide receiver Bennie Fowler suffered a fractured elbow during Thursday night's preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

Klis says Fowler will be "out a while", but no timetable has been officially listed.

It's a tough blow for Fowler who has been having a strong summer and seemed like the front-runner to be the Broncos number three wide receiver. This injury figures to keep him out at least a month, possibly up to 6 weeks to be fully healthy.

This opens up an opportunity for Cody Latimer and Jordan Taylor to push for that job and likely make the roster with Fowler sidelined for a bit.

More on this news when more becomes available.
