Brown Injured in Morning Practice

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- It was a with piercing, horrifying yelp from Courtney Brown that the Broncos' relatively tranquil training camp was shattered Thursday morning.

The six-year veteran defensive end will miss at least three weeks with a dislocated left elbow incurred during team drills during a morning practice session at the South Suburban Sports Dome.

"The X-rays were negative," Head Coach Mike Shanahan said. "There were no breaks, so he should be out anywhere from optimistically three weeks to pessimistically four to six weeks."

The injury was what defensive end Trevor Pryce termed a "freak accident."

"I think a safety hit him in his elbow as he was running downfield," Pryce said. "It's one of those things that happens."

Added defensive tackle Luther Elliss: "It looked like he was just going to help make the tackle and his arm just got caught between the ballcarrier and the tackler. He popped it out."

Brown's teammates knew the nature of the injury immediately.

"It was (scary), but I think everybody knew what happened," Pryce said. "Gerard went and looked at it, and he said, 'He dislocated his elbow.' It was out of place."

Denver is probably the only team in the league where injuries to their dline will actually make them better.

Shanahan will find a way to blame KC as he always does.

:hmmm: odd.

Injuries happen... we'll see how the 47 other Dlineman respond.

Okay just read through this thread... what the **** guys? Since when is Bob more optimistic about a Broncos player than all of you? A week ago it was all posts about how a "second Trevor" is going to be huge for us... now he gets hurt and will miss most of PRESEASON and youre throwing him to the wolves like hes a brittle girl?

Courtney makes the team. Courtney goes to the pro-bowl. Courtney helps us go deep into the play offs.

Concerned about roster room for younger guys? Hes 28! He is one of the younger guys.
