Kevin Vickerson Injury: Broncos DT Suffers Concussion

Denver Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson suffered a concussion during yesterday's final practice of training camp, according to the Denver Post, putting his status for Saturday's game against the Seattle Seahawks in doubt. Vickerson had to leave the field for the locker room before practice was over, with Ty Warren, Justin Bannan and Mitch Unrein all continuing to take snaps with the first-term defense.

Vickerson was awarded a two-year contract by the Broncos following a breakout 2010 season, and was expected to play a prominent role on a rebuilding Broncos defense. Unfortunately, a severe ankle injury cut his season short at five games, and this offseason, Vickerson took a pay cut in order to stay on the team.

Vickerson was currently slated to be in yet another rotational situation, behind Ty Warren and Derek Wolfe, although given the nature of injuries on the Broncos defensive line it was likely he would see decent time with the first-team defense this season.
