The Denver Broncos come into this season with high aspirations after trading for Russell Wilson to be their starting quarterback. With a great defense and an impressive skill position group, Super Bowl is the goal in the Mile High City.

Although that skill position group may have suffered a blow on Tuesday when wide receiver Tim Patrick went down in practice with a non-contact injury.

Tim Patrick Injury Update

Patrick is slated to be the No. 3 wide receiver in Denver this season behind the talented duo of Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. This injury might change that. Patrick turned in a solid season in 2021, hauling in 53 catches for 734 yards and 5 touchdowns in 16 games.

While the details of the injury are not yet know, a non-contact injury is rarely a good sign, and when teammates are circled around you on one knee, it makes things look even worse.

The Broncos do have depth at wide receiver behind Patrick, but none that have proven his level of production yet. K.J. Hammler will most likely step up into his place, but other options include Kendall Hinton and Montrell Washington.

If Patrick suffered a serious injury, it will be a big blow to Denver's offense. This is certainly a situation Broncos fans want to monitor closely.
