BRONCOS ROOKIE WR CARLOS HENDERSON TO HAVE THUMB SURGERY
Injuries on both sides of the ball continue to pile up for the Broncos.
Broncos rookie receiver and kickoff returner Carlos Henderson suffered a thumb injury in Thursday’s preseason game at Chicago and will undergo a procedure Sunday to determine the severity and repair it, an NFL source confirmed. The team will not know a timetable for his return until after the procedure.
9News first reported Henderson’s injury.
Henderson injured his thumb early in the win over the Bears, and although he tried to play through the pain, it affected his play.
He played eight snaps at receiver and had one catch for 7 yards. He also played 12 special teams snaps and returned three kickoffs for 47 yards.
Henderson did not practice Saturday or participate in the Broncos’ afternoon walkthrough as he underwent further evaluation on his thumb.
