Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton injures shoulder, leading to MRI


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton suffered a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder during Thursday’s practice, sources told ESPN.

Sutton suffered an injury as he leaped and landed awkwardly to hold the position for about 30 minutes at the workout. He stayed on the ground for a while before going off the field with the trainers and inside the Broncos complex.

The third-year receiver, who played in his first Pro Bowl last year as an injury replacement for Diandre Hopkins, was then taken for an MRI, sources told ESPN.

His question for the Broncos’ opener in Monday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans is questionable.

Denver lost linebacker Von Miller for an extended period of time – possibly the season – with an ankle injury in Tuesday’s practice. Linebacker Bradley Chubb, who is returning from a torn ACL, has been limited in practices with knee pains.

Sutton, who led the Broncos last season with 72 catches and 1,112 yards, is a vocal leader on one of the league’s youngest offenses as he enters his third season. He is the only receiver on the current roster who has taken more than 30 catches in any season with the team.

Less than an hour before Thursday’s practice, Sutton expressed confidence that despite the establishment of a new playbook and the team’s inexperience on offense, the Broncos could be productive early in the season.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Sutton said on Thursday. “We understand that there are things that we cannot control and cannot control that put us in this place, but I have nothing on me which I have any concern or any concern.

“I’m more excited than anything because I’ve seen it. I’ve noticed that whenever we see the way we’re clicking. I’ve seen what it looks like and how explosive it is. Could. ” I am really excited to see it on Monday. ”
