Denver Broncos running back Mario Fannin has reportedly injured his Achilles. He tore his ACL last training camp.

Denver Broncos fans have had high hopes for running back Mario Fannin for the last two off seasons, and for another season we'll be unable to find out if those hopes can be lived up to. Fannin reportedly injured his Achilles tendon on Saturday during the team's practice at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

At 5-foot-11 and 224 pounds, Fannin appears to be a bruiser with speed, but he has been hurt early in camp that we have yet to see him take part in any preseason games. In 2011, shortly after signing as an undrafted free agent, Fannin tore his ACL.

Fannin would have had a fight on his hands to make the roster with Willis McGahee, rookie Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno among the leaders to appear on the depth chart.
