    Brown Injured in Morning Practice

    By Andrew Mason

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- It was a with piercing, horrifying yelp from Courtney Brown that the Broncos' relatively tranquil training camp was shattered Thursday morning.

    The six-year veteran defensive end will miss at least three weeks with a dislocated left elbow incurred during team drills during a morning practice session at the South Suburban Sports Dome.

    "The X-rays were negative," Head Coach Mike Shanahan said. "There were no breaks, so he should be out anywhere from optimistically three weeks to pessimistically four to six weeks."

    The injury was what defensive end Trevor Pryce termed a "freak accident."

    "I think a safety hit him in his elbow as he was running downfield," Pryce said. "It's one of those things that happens."

    Added defensive tackle Luther Elliss: "It looked like he was just going to help make the tackle and his arm just got caught between the ballcarrier and the tackler. He popped it out."

    Brown's teammates knew the nature of the injury immediately.

    "It was (scary), but I think everybody knew what happened," Pryce said. "Gerard went and looked at it, and he said, 'He dislocated his elbow.' It was out of place."

        This is why, unlike some of you, I didn't get my hopes up about an oft-injured defensive line.

          Damnit

          What a bad situation. So are we thinking he will be back by week 2 or 3 of preseason?

            ^Yeah that.

            What did I tell you people? Shanny made some of the dumbest moves this past offseason. It's going to bite us in the ass now.

              He'll be out only during the preseason so I guess we can all take a deep breath and hope for the best.

                Trying to find the positive side (if there is one)... less stress for his foot, more time to recover, but at the same time, less time to get in shape....

                  It was a freak accident, guys (you know who you are). It's not like he had a degenerative elbow condition. If someone would've predicted that he'd dislocate his elbow then I'd say you were right; otherwise it appears to me that you're just waiting to pounce....

                    I don't care if he would have had a burst vein in his head, the guy is injury prone, simple. He will never be healthy and he will never have a chance to show his true potential.

                    Trust me, those Browns fans were hoping the SAME thing for the past 5 years. "He'll get healthy sooner or later, it's just a matter of time." Soon, another injury popped up, and another, and another.

                    The only good thing is that we have a man there now that had 8.5 sacks last season(Ebenezer Ekuban). So it shouldn't hurt THAT much.

                        Well don't get too uncomfortable, the season is all that counts and he should be rehabilitated by then. You are too quick to jump the gun man!

                          well, it is a dislocated left elbow, which means it will be weaker and subject to dislocate again.

                          He didn't even make it through training camp this year, and when he does come back in 3-6 weeks, or whatever the time frame, he won't be 100% during the year. That much is a given.

                            True, and there will be a guy in that spot when he returns. I really like Ekuban so I am not that upset with this. Hopefully he recovers.

                              I agree, Beast. Same thing happened to me my freshman year. Playing FS, receiver coming across the middle, ball is on the way, he's on the inside of my forearm and one of my teammates came over to "help" going the opposite direction on the outside of my upper arm. Pop!!! Hurt like hell, chipped a bone too, but I only missed 1 game.

                              He is oft injured, as you've said, (maybe the football gods don't like him), but this isn't THAT serious.... yet.

                              BTW, Beast... which is it? Is it going to "bite us in the ass" or "not hurt that much"??? Maybe just a nibble on the ass.... maybe???

                              Peace...
