ILB Danny Trevathan has lost his battle with Brandon Marshall to be the Broncos every-down inside linebacker.
Trevathan may have recorded more tackles than Marshall in both games so far this year, but Marshall has out-snapped Trevathan 54 to 32 in Week 1, and 60 to 38 in Week 2. Sell high on Trevathan if you own him, as his fantasy production is not sustainable while playing less than 60 percent of snaps each week. Marshall has solidified himself as a dependable LB2.

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan (kneecap) is healthy for the beginning of training camp.

As is Brandon Marshall (Lisfranc). It's great news for a Broncos linebacker corps that was ravaged by injury last year. Trevathan proved to be a difference maker in 2013 before injuries limited him to 100 snaps last season. He'll be an every-down player for Wade Phillips' defense.

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan (knee) has been limited during offseason workouts.

"I'm limited," Trevathan said. "I can’t do too much movement, but it’s good for me." Trevathan recently declared himself 100 percent, but he's still not fully recovered from his knee issues. When healthy, Trevathan projects as an every-down inside linebacker in DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme.

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan participated as the team opened offseason workouts on Tuesday.

Trevathan recently declared himself "100 percent" recovered from a barrage of severe 2014 injuries, and his spring participation confirms it. One of the NFL's most underrated linebackers when healthy, Trevathan should be a full-time inside linebacker in new Broncos DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme. At age 25, Trevathan is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
Apr 28 - 6:24 PM

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan (knee) said he's 100 percent healthy.

Trevathan appeared in just three games last season, playing on 100 snaps. He fractured his leg in August, and returned in Week 5 only to fracture his kneecap in Week 6. Trevathan came back again Week 15, but fractured his kneecap again and was done for the season. He and Brandon Marshall should handle inside 'backer duties in new DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme.
Apr 17 - 11:10 AM

Broncos OLB Danny Trevathan is done for the season after re-injuring his left knee in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

He has a dislocated kneecap, and requires surgery. Trevathan has been slowed by left-knee issues all season, and will close the book on 2014 having played just 100 snaps. It's a poorly-timed injury, as WLB Brandon Marshall is now dealing with a foot issue. A 16-game starter a year ago, Trevathan is signed cheaply ($660,000) for 2015. He'll be back with the Broncos.

Broncos WLB Danny Trevathan has been diagnosed with a fracture above his left kneecap.

The Denver Post's Mike Klis reports Trevathan will miss 3-6 weeks, making him droppable in IDP leagues. Trevathan is an impact run defender when in the lineup. The Broncos will turn back to Brandon Marshall on the weak side.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 03:27:00 PM

Broncos WLB Danny Trevathan was forced from Denver's Week 6 game against the Jets with a left-knee injury, and will not return.

Broncos WLB Danny Trevathan practiced on Friday for the first time since fracturing his left leg on August 12.

Trevathan is unlikely to play against the Seahawks despite a questionable tag, but looks on pace to return after the Broncos' Week 4 bye. The leading tackler for the Broncos in 2013, Trevathan's return will be a boost to an already stacked defense.

Broncos WLB Danny Trevathan has been diagnosed with a fractured left tibia, and will be sidelined 6-8 weeks.

The good news is, Trevathan has avoided injury to his ACL and MCL. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Denver is targeting a Week 5 return. It's a huge blow for the Broncos, who are losing an every-down player, and have little depth at outside linebacker. A 2012 sixth-rounder, Trevathan didn't miss a game through his first two seasons, and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 11 4-3 outside linebacker last season. He was the Broncos' leading tackler.

Broncos WLB Danny Trevathan was carted off the field with a knee injury Tuesday.

Initial tests have the Broncos feeling optimistic that Trevathan has avoided serious injury. The full details won't be known until Trevathan undergoes an MRI. Trevathan is an every-down linebacker and a major part of the Denver defense. His loss would be a massive one. We'll provide an update later.
