Broncos LT Garett Bolles, CB Ronald Darby suffer season-ending injuries

The Denver Broncos continue to be devastated by injuries.

Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett announced Friday that left tackle Garett Bolles (broken leg) and cornerback Ronald Darby (torn ACL) will miss the rest of the season.

Bolles had allowed one sack and was penalized three times for false starts through the team’s first five games, according to STATS. The next man up on Denver’s depth chart at left tackle is 26-year-old veteran Calvin Anderson.

Darby totaled 14 tackles, three pass breakups and one forced fumble in five games before tearing his ACL. The next man up on the depth chart behind Darby is fourth-round draft pick Damarri Mathis. The Broncos might also have Michael Ojemudia (elbow) return from injured reserve before Week 6.

Bolles and Darby are the latest Denver starters to suffer serious injuries this year, joining wide receiver Tim Patrick (ACL; out for year), running back Javonte Williams (ALC; out for year), outside linebacker Randy Gregory (knee; IR) and safety Justin Simmons (thigh; IR).

The Broncos also went into Thursday’s game without guard Quinn Meinerz (hamstring) and tight end Greg Dulcich (hamstring). Then inside linebacker Josey Jewell (knee) and edge defender Baron Browning (wrist) left the game and did not return.

There’s still a lot of football left to be played, but these injuries will be difficult to overcome in Denver.
