NFL Injury Report: Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil dealing with shoulder injury

Grant Halverson

Broncos head coach John Fox announced that the loss of defensive end Elvis Dumervil to a shoulder issue was the only significant injury his team suffered in Week 10.

Despite racking up their fourth consecutive win, the Denver Broncos were still unable to escape Sunday's game with Carolina without suffering a significant injury on the defensive side of the ball.

Starting Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil left the field in the middle of the second quarter after aggravating his shoulder, even though the speedy pass rusher still had enough time to record a sack and a forced fumble before being shut down for the day. Dumervil is slated for a Monday MRI according to The Denver Post, as the AFC West-leading Broncos will clearly be hoping for the best while they await the results.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Dumervil was the only serious injury head coach John Fox noted in his press conference following Sunday's win. Star receiver Demaryius Thomas left the game briefly with an apparent knee injury, but quickly came back to the field and immediately picked up where he left off. While Thomas' knee problem does not appear to be a lingering issue, it's clear the Broncos may play things safe with their star wideout at practice during the week.
