Elvis Dumervil Injury: Denver Broncos Defensive End Injures Shoulder

Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil has hurt his shoulder and is questionable to return in this game against the Oakland Raiders.

Not even one quarter has gone by for the Denver Broncos and there are already concerns over the health of Elvis Dumervil. He left the game in the first quarter and was worked on by the trainers on the sidelines. He has reportedly come down with a shoulder injury and was questionable to return. He returned a few series later.

Dumervil missed the entire 2010 season when he tore his pectoral muscle during training camp. The Broncos lacked a pass during that season, struggling to reach 23 sacks for the season. The Broncos moved Dumervil back to the line this season with the change to a 4-3 defense. He and Robert Ayers are supposed to be the anchors at end. The team also drafted Von Miller to help with the pass rush.
