News surfaced this morning from ESPN's Adam Schefter that Denver Broncos outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil went down with a pectoral injury that will keep him out for at least 4 months, and possibly the entire season.
This is a big uh oh for the Denver Broncos and a big fist pump for Jacksonville Jaguars fans.
Now I want to say it's horrible that Dumervil went down with a potential season injury. He is a vital part of the Denver Bronco's 3-4 defense, and if I were a Bronco fan I'd be devastated. Elvis is the prime example of why I feel like players should get as much money as they can when they can. Luckily for him, he signed a contract prior to the injury.
For Jacksonville Jaguars fans however, this might push what some had penciled as a win for the Jaguars to write it down in sharpie.
The Broncos for week one will likely be without star left tackle Ryan Clady and now Elvis Dumervil. They also suffered injuries to runningbacks Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter, forcing them to sign former Titan and Seahawk LenDale White. White's also suspended for the first four games. It's a storm Bronco's fans don't want to deal with, and it's not a fun one. We all know how devastating it was for the Jacksonville Jaguars when they lost half of their offensive line in a single game in 2008.
My sympathies go out to Broncos fans, but for Jaguars fans... this game looks like it should be a win for now.
Here's hoping Elvis has a speedy recovery and can get back to playing form.
