Broncos’ Patrick feared to have injured Achilles
Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick is feared to have injured his Achilles, head coach Sean Payton said Monday.
Patrick suffered the apparent ailment during practice Monday.
“I was watching it directly ’cause he was running a route and it was something we corrected earlier,” Payton said. “Planted, thought it looked like he slipped. We’re evaluating his left Achilles. That’s what we think the injury is. We haven’t confirmed it until he gets the MRI. Wasn’t any contact, it was just kind of coming out of a cut.”
Payton added: “It’s difficult for his teammates, for all of us.”
Patrick missed the entire 2022 campaign after tearing the ACL in his right knee last August.
The 29-year-old wideout went undrafted out of Utah in the 2017 draft. Patrick has 143 caree
