Had a big wrap on the sidelines, he uses his arms for leverage do much that the type of injury it appears to be could prove to be a big impact to him

As happens in so many victories in the sport of football, the news wasn’t all good.

Broncos two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Elvis Dumervil left in the first half with a strained left shoulder. He did not return. He will have an MRI on the shoulder back in Denver on Monday morning.

“You have to stay confident, man,” Dumervil said.

Dumervil felt something strain — “nothing popped,” he said, — in the backside muscle area of the left shoulder, perhaps involving the lat or labrum.

“It’s hard to pinpoint what happened at what particular time,” Dumervil said. “We’ll know t(Monday) morning and see what happens.”

Dumervil registered his seventh sack of the season before the injury. With Dumervil out, the Broncos gave plenty of playing time to rookie Malik Jackson.

I suspect he'll be okay. Seemed to me they took him out to make sure he didn't make things worse in case it is serious. They didn't wrap his shoulder or take him to the locker room for treatment so I'd be very surprised if it was anything more than a pulled muscle or the like.

Took him out because if he played the second half, would the Panthers had even gained a meaningful yard the rest of the game?

Yeah, he was still on the sidelines without getting any real treatment so maybe it's not a serious injury.

Ayers has clearly decided that he wants to be a football player. Physically, it looks like they have him at the perfect weight and muscle ratios.. Thick, sturdy, yet not too much extra baggage. He's quick out there. Looks like he's mentally ready for the game and playing with a lot of energy.

I was being half serious.

Ayers likely can't keep this type of effectiveness week in and week out, but the point I was making was he played elite today. 2 pass deflections, 1 sack, 2 QB hits...and numerous more pressures..he was exploding off the line as fontaine pointed out earlier in the week... and he's much better against the run than Dumervil.

Ayers played really well last week also, and has been steady all season. It's just now these past 2 games he's having some things go his way. Sometimes it takes a few years for these guys to get it going. Don't know why but that's what alot of people say when it comes to DLmen.

Absolutely Baja, great the Ayers is starting to play lights out too, but we can't afford to for Doom to lose any real time either... although Malik looked pretty good out there today too in relief of Doom.

Ideally it's a minor deal and if Doom has to miss a game or two the both Syers and Malik continue to turn it up and Mslik could only benefit for the extra live bullets...nevertheless, we can't be losing a starter every week I'd two for the season...

Why would he be out for the year? Blaine Gabbert is playing with the same injury. Yes I know Doom plays a more physically demanding position. Without knowing the severity of it seems hard say what the recovery time would be. I've read that the recovery time depends an a number of factors, it could be a month could be longer.

11-11-2012, 10:22 PM
i think its a bigger deal for him, he needs his arms more than an average player to create leverage, if he doesn't have power in his upper body he will be very ineffective playing on the line

lets hope its a strain, lets hope if its a tear he is only out 6 weeks

again, doesn't sound good, cross our fingers!

In case he is out for the year, here's what is available.

http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/nfl/41331/74/best-available-nfl-free-agents?pg=2

There was some buzz about Antwan Odom over the summer, but he never signed with anyone.

Garland is the only D-lineman on the PS.

DE depth really hit this year with Hunter, Beal, and now Doom.

Amazing how many key players they've lost and so far haven't skipped a beat.

He also tore his pec season before last The labrum is really part of the shoulder socket cartilage. The way he was lifting his arm on the sidelines when Greek was examining him sure looked like a possible labrum or dislocation issue. And for Dooms job using his leverage and press for getting to the QB, if its anything more than a minor deal he could be out quite some time Im afraid.... assuming it really is a labrum tear to some degree?

Lets hope its the mildest form and he;s back for teh Charger game even with a support shoulder sling if need be.

In the meantime. thos week will no doubt see a D gameplan featuring Ayers and Malik Jackson getting lots of reps.

AS long as one of those two can keep up the pressure like they did today, and take a little heat off of Von, we should be alright.

But we've got to stop losing one starter for the season or a long time almost every week now. Its not okay when half our starting team winds up being depth..

Boobs McGee
11-11-2012, 11:29 PM
I dont know if it helps to determine anything, but from.rewatching part of the game, he appears to be wrapped underneath his jersey on the sidelines...it appears to be an ace bandage that goes all the way across his upper body.

I've torn ligament before and you can definitely feel and hear the pop when it happens. Of course that was a full tear so I don't know. We've had discussions on this board in the past that a sprain is actually a tear but just a small one. I think if it would have been a full tear he would have known right there. Hope for the best.

Sunday night will be a nervous one for Broncos DE Elvis Dumervil.

After injuring his left shoulder early in Sunday's 36-14 win over the Panthers, the Pro Bowler sat out the last three quarters, looking on as his teammates continued to hound and harass Carolina QB Cam Newton into seven sacks, the most by the Broncos in nine years.

Dumervil will undergo an MRI on Monday morning.

"I tried to go out one more time, but it didn't feel as comfortable as I would have liked it to," Dumervil said. "I've played through some pain and injuries, but this one hurt pretty bad."

Dumervil had a sack and a forced fumble before the injury Sunday and now has seven sacks this season and 16.5 in the Broncos' last 16 regular-season games.

The shoulder is the same one he strained in the Broncos' season opener last year. As a result of that injury, he missed two games.

I posted this in another thread, but it probably belongs here:

Whatever they are doing to motivate Robert Ayers, they need to keep doing it, because he is playing like a wild dog.

Elvis Dumervil will probably be out for several weeks, if not the season....Robert Ayers has the ability to come in and a play a more well rounded defensive end and keep the defense playing at a very high level.

With Dumervil out, the defense will miss his big play ability....the sack and forced fumble potential he brings on every passing play, but Ayers has the ability to make the defense more stout.

All that said, I really hope Dumervil is able to come back in a few weeks, as Denver needs as many weapons and combinations, as well as depth, that they can utilize on defense. This defense reminds me of the 1997-1998 Denver defenses in that they are great at playing with a lead and pinning their ears back when they know teams will be passing. The ability to bring Von and Elvis after the QB at the same time will be missed....when those 2 are on and closing in on the QB at the same time, it's bad news for opposing QBs....and a lot of fun to watch for Denver fans.

Ayers just looks so much bigger and stronger at the point of attack than he ever did before. Like a completely different player. Now Cam holds the ball way too damn long, so I don't want to get too excited, but right now Robert is 2 for 2 beast mode the past couple of weeks.

GREAT news:

http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/

Good news for the Broncos. An MRI exam today on the left shoulder of defensive end Elvis Dumervil revealed no significant injury.

Dumervil did suffer a serious enough strain in the muscle area behind the shoulder Sunday to miss the final three quarters of the Broncos’ 36-14 win at Carolina. The pass rusher suffered the injury while swatting the ball out of the passing hand of Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, a play that credited Dumervil with a forced fumble and his seventh sack of the season.

Dumervil will likely be listed as questionable for the game this Sunday against the San Diego Chargers but it appears he avoided long-term injury.

That is excellent news....between Dumervil, DMT, and Peyton Manning's awkward slide, I was getting the vibe that it was going to be one of those games that Denver would lose a few players to injury.

Give Doom a game off to heal. We need him later too badly to take a risk for one game when we only need few wins against teams we should beat to win the division.

Difficult question for everyone.

Should the team rest Doom this week so he is 100% near the end of the season or play him since it is a division game that with a win basically gives us the division?

I'd rest Doom for sure and try to let him heal up as much as possible for the playoffs. Also, with Ayers playing so well, it gives Ayers a chance to get more playing time.

A muscle sprain like I said.

I think give him an easy week, see how he feels on Friday, if he can put pressure on it then dress him and give him a few plays, if not sit him and hope he is ready for the next week.

This is awesome news.

Can this thread be a lesson to stop speculating on injuries?

I swear some people already made up their minds he had a tear and was probably out for the rest of the year.

It's sad no wonder us weekly and tmz make so much money

You havent been here very long.

This is what the Mane does. Try going back and looking at a thread about Marshall's hand. Actually, dont even waste your time.

THank God because as a Maner, I was going to come to my own conclusion and throw out an opinion that rivals light rail excerpts and go with amputation and out for 8 to 12 weeks.

Rather he plays or not they should upgrade Doom to probable so SD has to prepare for him.

No way, when I had my amputation a few years back it was more like a 6 months, and really it has never been the same.

Honestly, if he feels okay Sunday, let him go, but extremely limit him. Say only on passing downs and if the game gets out of hand, rest him.

It's great that when one guy goes out -- his replacement comes in and steps it up.

We saw this with Porter -- then Mays -- now Doom.

Carter, Brooking, Ayers ...

This is a sign the team is finally coming together.

That's a good one. Winning this would give us a 4 game lead over the Chargers (with the tiebreaker).

7-3
4-6

That said, if Ayers can keep stepping it up it might be perfectly fine to rest him.

Nothing but rehab and rest for Dumervil. This team is definitely a SuperBowl contender with him....without him, not so sure.

Unless your name is Elvis Dumervil, I say STFU! 8 to 12 weeks is what I was going with for an amputation for Doom. You are just a feeble human. 6 months? What are you rehabing if nothing is there anymore?

The Broncos got the best possible news on DE Elvis Dumervil's left shoulder Monday when an MRI revealed nothing more than a muscle strain. Dumervil is considered "day to day," Broncos coach John Fox said.

Dumervil had a sprained left shoulder early in 2011 that he tried to play through in Week 1. However, his struggles to play essentially one-armed led the Broncos to deactivate him for two games before he returned to the lineup. Thus, the Broncos might be cautious with Dumervil, who said Sunday the shoulder "hurt pretty bad," causing him to miss the final three quarters of Denver's 36-14 win.

"He'll be fine," S Rahim Moore said. "I know when he was in [on Sunday] he played his butt off, and he was going to have a monster game, like he always does. That's our captain, that's our leader, that's our playmaker."

Dumervil is second on the Broncos with seven sacks this year.

If Dumervil doesn't play against San Diego on Sunday, Robert Ayers -- a former starter and 2009 first-round pick who was demoted this summer -- would likely take his place. Ayers played 49 snaps on Sunday and finished with a sack, five tackles, two tackles for losses and two passes defensed.

"Robert did an outstanding job stepping in when Elvis went down," Fox said. "He had probably one of his better outings since I've been here."

Football players and coaches don't think like that. If he can play, if he's healthy enough to go, he will go. Way to early in the season still to count SD out. Seriously we beat them down and we go a long ways to knocking them out. That and Doom prob hates Rivers. He could sit if he can't practice by thursday, but if he can i bet he plays.
