Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post provides these details regarding Dumervil’s recent health.

Dumervil suffered a torn pectoral muscle during the first week of training camp and had surgery in early August. The team held out hope through the rest of the preseason that Dumervil would be able to recover in time for him to return for the final month of the season.

Dumervil joins Denver Broncos teammate LenDale White, who will also miss the season due to injury.
