Default Torain hurt.....again

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- On Tuesday, Denver running back Ryan Torain talked about the importance of staying healthy.

On Wednesday morning, the Broncos discovered that Torain had suffered a PCL strain in his right knee.

He had stayed healthy for the first 16 days of training camp. Torain, who was fighting for a roster spot, is expected to be out for the rest of the preseason.

A fifth-round pick last year, Torain was plagued by injuries at Arizona State. He suffered a left elbow injury in training camp last season that kept him out for three months and then he tore the ACL in his left knee in his first significant action during the regular season.

Denver signed running back Marcus Thomas on Wednesday. The team did not announce a corresponding roster move. If a move is being made on Torain, options include him being put on injured reserve or being waived/injured. I will give updates as the story developments.

Bummer, Torain's got tons of talent, but I don't think he can make it through a few games let alone an entire season.

Damn it. How bad is a strain and how important is a PCL?

Has there been an MRI? If not, they know nothing. They always say strain or sprain before the MRI, but that could mean anything.

Can't he just get anything with a "CL" in it removed? I feel bad for the guy, he has a lot of talent.

Thank god we drafted Moreno and signed Buckhalter and Jordan, and we have Hillis, and we signed the new guy, and we have Darius walker. Man we have a lot of backups.

All that running back depth we added is looking like a smart move. Feel bad for the kid but some guys just can't stay healthy facing the pounding in the NFL. 3 years in a row of injuries now.

A PCL strain is nothing to worry too much about. A sprain would be much worse.

Were people expecting a lot out of Torain this year or something? He's like a 3rd string backup.

I feel for him personally but as far as the Broncos are concerned, So what. We lost a injury plagued upright runner. I have no idea what he did to get people so hyped about him. The whole half a game I saw him play in was piss poor.
