"Sources told the Denver Post that Dawkins, who suffered the injury during Tuesday's practice, had surgery and is expected to return in two weeks."

I get your point, but why are players saying it's just sad. David Bruton said something along the lines of having an opportunity to earn a starting position and needing to step up... Something doesn't add up.

Dawkins is too tough to let his career succumb to a hand injury. I bet he doesn't miss a game because of it.

logic of most offseason newspapers trying to create a store where there is none:
1. dawkins is old
2. dawkins has an injury
3. old players with injuries are career enders
4. dawkins must be ending his career

What was that dude they had that had a pinkie injury a few years ago that ended his season. A defensive tackle named Davis or something.

I am curious like the othes though, what could he have done to his hand to make it "career ending"? Short of amputation, I don't see how it could end his career.

TSN is the ****tiest sports reporting media outlet out there! Everything they have written this offseason regarding the Broncos has been so far from reality, it makes Disney World look like...well you get my point!

TSN's crack team of journalists ran with this story from the tweet of a Philly beat writer! WTF? Dawkins is fine. He'll play for Denver this year and The Sporting News will continue to be the septic tank of sports writing!
