Broncos lose another starting offensive lineman for the season
The Denver Broncos are trying to fight their way through what has been another disappointing season, and the injury bug is not helping.
James Palmer of NFL Network revealed on Friday that offensive lineman Max Garcia suffered a torn ACL in practice the day before and will be out for the remainder of the season.
Another interior lineman for the #broncos done for the year. Max Garcia tore his ACL in practice yesterday per source. Brutal. They’re already down Ronald Leary (Achilles) and Matt Paradis (fractured fibula).

Garcia is now the third key member of Denver’s offensive line to suffer a season-ending injury. He was thrust into a starting role after left guard Ronald Leary tore his Achilles last month, and the Broncos have also lost starting center Matt Paradis to a fractured fibula.
Case Keenum’s first season with the Broncos has not gone well, as their prize free agent acquisition has thrown for 2,400 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. With Demaryius Thomas having been traded and several key offensive linemen now out for the year, his job has become even more difficult.
