The Denver Broncos’ hopes to return to the top of the NFL pyramid with their new Quarterback Russell Wilson suffered a big blow when the Wide Receiver who got injured on 3rd August in training camp was revealed to have suffered one of the worst injuries in sports an ACL tear after results of his MRI came out. Along with Patrick, running back Damarea Crockett also went down and he also suffered an ACL tear.

Patrick is one of the most underrated receivers in the league so his injury will setback the Broncos quite a bit as he led the Broncos with five touchdown receptions last season. He was also the team’s 2nd leading receiver with 734 receiving yards, while his 53 catches were good for third on the team behind Sutton and tight end Noah Fant, who traded the Seattle Seahawks during the offseason as part of the deal that brought Wilson to Denver.

Denver will now be without Patrick for the season opener against their new QB’s debut game against his former team the Seattle Seahawks on the 13th of September. In Patrick’s absence, Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy will be Wilson’s primary receivers. Patrick who signed a 3-year extension last November was expected to have a career year under Russell Wilson. Patrick has been Denver’s most consistent wideout over the last few seasons with Drew Lock as Quarterback.

The Broncos will be hoping for a speedy recovery and keeping their fingers crossed for him to return back as good as he left. Many athletes especially wide receivers after recovering from an ACL tear haven’t been able to reach the heights they reached before the injury.
