The Denver Broncos lost Von Miller earlier this week and now they have their star wide receiver Courtland Sutton heading to the locker room with an apparent shoulder injury. Mike Klis of 9News is reporting that Sutton went down awkwardly on his right hand when attempting to make a catch.

Troy Renck from Denver7 added more information on the aftermath of the event. He said that Sutton stayed down a moment and favored his right shoulder. After discussing the issue with trainers, he headed to the locker room.

Sutton, 24, had a breakout season in 2019 and was Drew Lock’s favorite target all through training camp. Losing him for any amount of time is going to severely hamper the Broncos offense. Add him to the loss of Von Miller and the entire 2020 season seems to hang in the balance.

Update 2:25 p.m.

Sutton is to have an MRI on his shoulder to determine the severity of the injury per Adam Schefter. That could indicate some sort of shoulder sprain. An MRI will help determine how bad it is and how long it might take for Sutton to return to action.

Update 4:10 p.m.

Given how bad it could have been, this is the best news we could have hoped for. This likely means that Sutton will miss the rest of practices leading up to Monday, but if he feels good to go we might see him start.

Per Mike Klis, Sutton is “day-to-day” when an AC joint sprain.
