Denver Broncos' CB and special teams maven Cassius Vaughn is likely out for the season after breaking a fibula in Sunday's victory over the San Diego Chargers. According to the Denver Post, Vaughn, who was unable to return to the game after the injury, was seen after the game with his lower leg bandaged as he was being taken to the team bus via a cart.
The Broncos had deactivated normal kick returner Quan Cosby before the game and delegated the duties to Vaughn. With him out, wide receivers Eric Decker and Eddie Royal returned kicks, but with both of them being key contributors on offense, Denver may look to reactivate Cosby for next week's match up vs. the Minnesota Vikings.
