Denver Broncos defensive lineman Ty Warren re-tore a triceps muscle and will likely miss his third full season in a row.
Denver Broncos defensive tackle Ty Warren has again torn a triceps muscle that he injured just more than a year ago. In all likelihood, that means the end to his season for the third year in a row. Broncos coach John Fox said the team will just have to move on with its season.
Fox: "Obviously we don't want to lose a player like Ty for a significant time, and this obviously will be, but we'll adjust. Next man up."— Gray Caldwell (@gray_dbdotcom) September 10, 2012
Warren now faces an uncertain future. The 31-year-old out of Texas A&M missed all of 2010 with a hip problem and all of 2011 due to the first triceps injury. That comes after seven strong seasons with the New England Patriots. He missed just seven games through those years.
Warren has 374 tackles and 20.5 sacks in his career.
While the Broncos' defense looked fine after Warren's injury, it looks like this might be a sad way to go out for the defensive lineman, who is in the last year of his contract.
