View Full Version : Ty Warren most likely done.

Dude is getting an MRI for a torn triceps. Funny how our biggest offseason need was DT and all of our DT's that were any good are already hurt. I'm talking about Warren, Thomas, and Bunkley.

So the MRI was positive?

Broncos DT Ty Warren underwent an MRI late Monday on a triceps injury the team fears is "significant."
Beat writer Lindsay Jones ominously posted on Twitter that the muscle is "torn," although we suspect she didn't mean to report it just yet. She certainly has inside information, though. Warren suffered the injury in Monday's practice. A torn tricep would require surgery and almost certainly end his season.

I wouldn't say "most likely done" at this point. Wait to see if it's torn. I believe Dumervil had a similar injury last year... was it tris or pecs?

You think Jamal would come back for a reduced price? Would be an interesting NT in the 4-3, and would open up options with Miller on the line, and maybe moving in Ayers at UT.

well if its torn he will be out. i really hope its not a tear, obviously.

Last year dumervil tore his pectoral muscle. Tears to anything are never good.

Well, that's what happens in the NFL.

That's why the BBT have screwed the pooch in addressing the DT position.

Now you have a bunch of journeymen manning the position when you could have had your pick among several players including a young run stuffer.

You never sign one guy and call it a year.

Torn Pec which immediately rendered him done for the first 12 games and that is why they IR'ed him.

I think a torn Tri is pretty bad as it is a push muscle rather than a pull muscle like the bicep.

**** this sucks. Right when I was ready to accept a mediocre FA period to address our biggest need. Just hope that some ok players get cut so we can scrape up some other 'depth' from remains. If we had spent a little more than his price on just 1 of the younger and injury free DT's we could have a good D, Maybe top 12-15 range.

montrose
08-15-2011, 08:57 PM
This is why I was hesitant to think the Broncos will be vastly improved this year - if we've learned anything it's that depth means everything and as evidenced last year with Dumervil and possibly this year with Warren - the Broncos depth is so fragile that one major injury can cripple the entire team.

Tombstone RJ
08-15-2011, 09:01 PM
Broncos can also pick up someone after roster trimming (I know, it still sucks) but if depth is important and just staying healthy and rotating guys in, then this is where depth will be added. Unfortunately, the interior dline is what it is as of right now and Warren was a pipe dream anyway.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos lost two defensive tackles to injury Monday and their rookie safety got into a brief fight with Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Lloyd.

The severity of the injuries to Ty Warren (arm) and Marcus Thomas (chest) were unknown.
"Hopefully, it's not serious," coach John Fox said.

Warren, who spent all of last season on injured reserve with a hip injury, signed an $8 million, two-year deal with Denver following his release from New England last month. He's one of three former first-rounders -- the others are Brodrick Bunkley and Derrick Harvey -- that the Broncos brought in to augment their defensive line.

Its not directly related to the knee injury. But he's still a 300 pound man on the wrong side of 30 who spent the entire last season out of football, this entire off-season until about two weeks ago out of football, and when he finally was getting back into football failed a conditioning test with his old team.

Big, old, out of shape. Not a great starting point for the rigors of camp and pre-season. Throw in his first considerable sampling of work at altitude and a condensed camp trying to squeeze a ton more in and you've got a recipe for disaster.

If its nothing serious we dodged a bullet and should respect that fact. Warren should be brought along with kid gloves throughout pre-season.

Not terribly surprised. There is a reason a player with Warren's resume was released and couldn't get a team to guarentee him more than $2.5 million (chump change in the world of NFL contracts). Like Drek said....big, old, and out of shape. Hopefully, Thomas' injury is not too serious. I think Vickerson and Bunkley will be OK as starters, but we have zero depth and little chance of acquiring anyone of quality.

Why should owners be able to snake their way out of a financial obligation because a guy gets injured on the job? You think a guy who gets injured on the job should get released without a dime? And how in any way is that related to asking the owners to open up their books to substantiate their claims of losses? The two issues are not related in the slightest.

I haven't seen any stats yet, but I'd be willing to bet that the league as a whole is going to see more preseason injuries than usual this year, simply because of the reduced off-season conditioning while the lockout was in effect. With a few exceptions, I don't care how disciplined you are, you never push yourself quite as hard as you get pushed when someone else is applying the pressure.

Don't disagree with any of this. It's when people relate missing season with a hip injury to a potentially torn tricep that posts get absurd.

All things considered, I think I'm gonna take this opportunity to re-rant about how I wanted Cofield. Because that seems like the most productive thing to do.

I say we wait for the Bears to cut down. Unless they carry 5 DTs (which IS possible), we can get a solid starter from their cut down.

Unless they changed it with the new CBA, no.

The way it's been we'd have #2 priority on the waiver wire until I think week 2-4 (somewhere in there) when they start changing it to current season record.

this shouldnt come as a shock...

we sort of took a gamble by bypassing the draft for DT and then going cheap in FA...

a guy like Warren had an injury history and sadly he was our biggest FA signing...

Thomas' injury is unfortunate, hopefully he gets back quicker rather than later...

Yeah, he likes him some crazy.

But really, what were we going to do? Sign some mid-twenties FA with a history of success on the verge of the prime of his career? That's just silly talk. Silly. Talk.

What else would we do but try to cobble together a passable NCAA D-2 starting d line from the scrap heap? It's the Broncos Way. I also heard that Xanders eats out of the trash behind Dunkin Donuts too. True story, heard it on the light rail.

Breaking: Sources: Broncos DT Marcus Thomas'pectoral injury is,"a little more serious than a strain." For proper precaution he should miss at least the remainder of the preseason with the information garnered at this point, however, the team will continuously monitor his status. The good news is, as things stand now, his pectoral injury has the ability to heal on it's own with proper treatment, patience, and time for recovery. The important thing is that the Broncos don't rush Marcus Thomas back too soon so his injury doesn't digress. The team will keep an eye on the flexibility and strength of the reparative tissue that will develop in the pectoral region. The healing process is of course individual. Another medical opinion will more than likely be sought for further evaluation and to eye his progress.

Klis said this morning they're going to take their time before deciding to have season-ending surgery or not. Because of what they invested financially, they may try to see if it can heal on its own and he can contribute late this season although this has a similar ring to the Doom injury last year.

And as an FYI, he CANNOT BE PLACED ON THE PUP LIST. Once a player has participated in a single practice before the season he is not eligible to be put on that list. If Warren plays this year, they'll have to keep him on the 53 and deactivate him every game (a la Torain in 2008).

Don't disagree with any of this. It's when people relate missing season with a hip injury to a potentially torn tricep that posts get absurd.

All things considered, I think I'm gonna take this opportunity to re-rant about how I wanted Cofield. Because that seems like the most productive thing to do.

Just blows the mind how 26 or 27 year old 300 pound guys seem to be healthy way more often than 30 or 31 year old 300 pound guys, doesn't it?

But what's a few million dollars between friends? Or in this case older DTs we overpaid for because we did a **** job appraising the FA talent at DT and what the market would bear for them.

I'm an eternal optimist and still think this team can effect a pretty significant turnaround, but good god does this **** try your patience or what?
