    More bad news for the Donks...

    Elvis Dumervil has torn pectoral muscle
    The results are in on Elvis Dumervil's injury, and the news is bad.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Dumervil, the Broncos' top pass rusher, suffered a torn pectoral muscle during Wednesday's practice.

    A torn pectoral muscle is usually a season-ending injury. Schefter reports that Dumervil is expected to miss about four months, which means he might be able to return for the final few weeks of the regular season.

    Losing Dumervil, who's coming off a 17-sack season in 2009, is a huge blow to the Broncos. The injury comes just two weeks after Dumervil signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract that guarantees him $43 million

    I don't wish injuries on anyone. That sucks.

    But this sure helps us out. Dumervil is their best pass rusher, by a country mile.

    He's going to miss about 2/3's of the season.

    Helps us out in terms of playing them and their ability to play othe rteams but it also hurts us with MM & VJ having items to point out as to why they don't want to sign until they get a big contract. On the flip side of that it has to raise the eyebrows of the Bolt brass as to why you wouldn't want to sign a player to a big contract until you absolutely have to.

    Even though they are a division rival, this really sucks for them. At least the man got paid! :tup:

    He can watch us kick their arses from the comfort of his home, resting while his pec heals.

    Adam_Schefter - Elvis Dumervil's injury is precisely why players such as Darrelle Revis, Vincent Jackson, Shawne Merriman and Marcus McNeill aren't in camp.

    I;m sure when AJ heard this all he could do is just put his down and shake it. Knowing this is going to make it that much tougher to get them signed and in.

    PS: For the record.....It's not about money for Merriman.:lol:

    Hey Adam
    The owner and players greed in killing the golden goose (collective bargaining agreement) is the reason GMs don't want or have to pay players like those

    And as mentioned I don't support or dance on injuries for players but losing both Dumervil and Clady have ensured that the Broncos won't remotely challenge us. It's a big help.

    If Denver’s GM isn’t on the phone with Aaron Schobel’s agent right this minute, then he’s incompetent!

    We should give him a look, if for no other reason than to raise the amount of cash that it will take for the Broncos or one of our other rivals to sign him…:lol:

    Denver could try to stick it to Dumervil

    Posted by Mike Florio on August 5, 2010 1:20 PM ET

    So the fact that Broncos linebacker Elvis Dumervil suffered a likely season-ending torn pectoral muscle not long after inking a six-year deal that guarantees him $43 million means that he'll get the $43 million, right?

    Not necessarily.

    A league source points out to us that, even though Dumervil's contract is fully guaranteed against injury, there's a potential scenario in which Dumervil simply won't get the bulk of the money.

    Players receive money that's guaranteed for injury only if they can't pass a physical. Many players have serious injuries, the injuries heal, they pass a physical, and then at some point they injure the area again. (See, e.g., Atari Bigby.)

    So, as the source explains it, the Broncos could determine in the future that Dumervil is healthy -- and then the Broncos could cut him before the first day of the next league year, when $14 million of his base salary for 2011 and another $14 million of his base salary for 2012 become guaranteed for skill.

    We're not saying that the Broncos will dump Dumervil before the first day of the next league year. We're saying that they can, if they so choose.

    And while such a move would allow Dumervil to hit the open market, who will give him $28 million guaranteed for injury and skill given that he missed all of 2010 with an injury?

    That's why there's only one truly guaranteed form of guaranteed money. A signing bonus. It's why guys like Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis aren't interested in $100 million in non-guaranteed base salaries, and why they want to maximize the signing bonus they receive. That way, if Revis tears an ACL or rips a pec or breaks a leg, the bulk of the money will be guaranteed because the money already will be in his bank account.

    Torn pectoral muscle might sit Broncos LB Dumervil for season


    • NFL.com Wire Reports
    • Published: Aug. 5, 2010

    Two weeks after signing a long-term contract extension, Denver Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Elvis Dumervil tore a pectoral muscle and will miss significant time, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora on Thursday.
    The injury is expected to take four months to heal, meaning Dumervil, who led the NFL with a team-record 17 sacks this past season, could miss the entire 2010 season. The injury typically requires surgery, which the Denver Post reported Dumervil likely will have.
    However, the Broncos won't rush to put Dumervil on injured reserve, pending a second opinion, and could carry him on their roster for a while, according to the source. If the Broncos fell out of the playoff race, they could shut down Dumervil for the season, the source added.
    Dumervil left practice Wednesday night holding his right arm and did not return. The Post reported Dumervil hurt his chest in a one-on-one pass drill against Tyler Polumbus.
    Dumervil, 26, parlayed his breakout 2009 season into a five-year, $58.332 million extension last month that included $43.168 million in guarantees, a record for a pass rusher. He has signed his free-agent tender earlier this summer for $680,000 and then received the extension, which included a $3 million signing bonus, for a total value of $61.5 million.
    Without Dumervil, the Broncos lack a bona fide pass rusher. Defensive lineman Darrell Reid had four sacks last year, the most of any other returning Broncos player.
    But Reid is currently sidelined with a knee ailment and hasn't participated in training camp.
    The other outside linebackers this season, former first-round picks Robert Ayers and Jarvis Moss, didn't have a sack last year.
    The Broncos were hoping that new nose tackle Jamal Williams would practice for the first time at camp Thursday. McDaniels hasn't said whether Williams has been held out for injury or conditioning reasons. The 348-pound Williams was brought in to help push the pocket and allow Dumervil to get to the quarterback more often.
    Now, that plan has to be altered.
    Training camp has gotten off to a bad start for the Broncos. They lost their top two tailbacks, Correll Buckhalter (back) and Knowshon Moreno (hamstring), on the first day of camp.
    Inside linebacker D.J. Williams, one of the leaders of the defense, has missed practices for unspecified reasons.
    Just when the Broncos received backfield reinforcements by signing LenDale White on Wednesday, their All-Pro linebacker got hurt.
    Dumervil prospered last season in the Broncos' new defensive look that converted him from a classic 4-3 defensive end into a stand-up outside linebacker in the 3-4.
    Despite his diminutive stature -- 5-foot-11 and 248 pounds -- Dumervil possesses long arms and a low center of gravity, making him difficult to defend.
    He has 43 sacks since being drafted in the fourth round out of the University of Louisville in 2006.
    Dumervil was anticipating another big season, too, joking around before camp began about the pressures of trying to defend his sacks crown.

    This injury doesn't matter....at all. They are a 4-12 team with him or without him.


    All it does is get them closer to the #1 pick next year, and mourning the missed opportunity of Jake Locker or Andrew Luck because they already have Teblow.

    Report: Dumervil to have surgery

    August, 8, 2010
    By Bill Williamson
    ESPN



    The Denver Post is reporting Denver Broncos star linebacker Elvis Dumervil is going to have the surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. The surgery will very likely will mean Dumervil will miss the entire season.

    Dumervil was injured Wednesday and the team initially hoped Dumervil would be back for a few games. Yet, that seemed like a long shot. Dumervil likely will not play in 2010. Denver had been operating under that assumption the past few days. Dumervil led the NFL with 17 sacks last season.

    He will be replaced by Jarvis Moss and Robert Ayers, who are both former No.1 pick who have yet to develop. Moss broke his hand the day after Dumervil was hurt and he will miss two weeks
