Yes, every team has injuries. Broncos have strong case for having way more than most. Total IR at 13 players, now nearing $45 million. #9sports
The rookie tight end left the game in the third quarter with a right knee injury during a tackle after a 7-yard reception.
Okwuegbunam was in a lot of pain but still walked off the field on his own.
