Report: Matt Paradis believed to have suffered fractured fibula

The Denver Broncos suffered a major blow as starting center Matt Paradis is believed to have a fractured fibula.

Denver Broncos center Matt Paradis went down with an injury in the first half of the Houston Texans game and needed a cart to get off the field and into the locker room. It has now been reported that team sources believe Paradis has suffered a fractured fibula. That will likely end his season if true.

The broken leg would keep Paradis sidelined for at least six weeks, which means he could theoretically be back for a playoff run. However, there is a lot that would need to go right for the Broncos to make that happen in these final eight games.

Tough break for a player in his contract year.
