The Denver Broncos saw three players go down tih injury during Thursday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Wide receiver Britt Davis was hammered by former Bronco Hamza Abdullah and left the game. Linebacker Nate Irving hurt his chest. But none was more devastating than the one to defensive back Syd'Quan Thompson, who tore his right Achilles tendon. He will be out for the season, reports Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post.
Thompson was a seventh-round draft pick out of Cal in 2010. He went on to play in 13 games for the Broncos as a rookie last year. His two interceptions were tied for the team-lead with Champ Bailey and Renaldo Hill, which shows how non-aggressive the team was in coverage last season.
Thompson's season-ending injury almost assuredly guarantees a roster spot for Perrish Cox, even with his status up in the air due to his trial for alleged sexual assault.
