Report: Broncos LB Drew Sanders has torn Achilles

Drew Sanders

The Denver Broncos won’t have second-year linebacker Drew Sanders until late in the 2024 season, if then, due to a torn Achilles that he sustained last month, ESPN reported Monday.

News of the injury was first reported by 9News in Denver. Sanders’ recovery time is expected to be six to nine months, and the injury occurred in mid-April. Sanders has since undergone surgery.

The third-round pick in the 2023 draft played in all 17 games last season, with four starts.

The team had not acknowledged the injury, and last month, Broncos general manager George Paton mentioned Sanders among the players under consideration for playing time at outside linebacker.

In this year’s draft, however, Denver took Utah outside linebacker Jonah Elliss in the third round.
