Days after they started training camp, Denver Broncos already faced injury issues. According to NFL Network’s James Palmer, Broncos’ linebacker Todd Davis suffered an injury on the opening day of practice on Thursday and had to be carted from the field.

After undergoing an MRI, Davis was diagnosed with a calf tear. He is reportedly set to miss “three to four weeks” which means he will be ready to go once the 2019 NFL season kicks off. The thing that might worry Denver, however, is that the 27-year-old might take more time to get in shape which wouldn’t be a good thing for their already LB-thin defense.

Todd Davis has been one of the Broncos’ most reliable players on the defense in the past couple of seasons. He had arguably the best season of his career in 2018, when he contributed with 114 tackles, 0.5 sacks, one interception and seven passes defended.

Davis, who joined Broncos in 2015 as an undrafted free agent, compiled 336 tackles, 2.0 sacks, and twelve passes defended and one defensive touchdown over the course of his NFL career.
