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 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.

A surprise IDP breakout, Trevathan was Denver's preferred every-down 'backer last season. With Wesley Woodyard now in Tennessee and an extremely thin depth chart, we like Trevathan to continue in that role this season. He's a solid LB2 for those in IDP circles.
May 16 - 3:05 PM

Broncos WLB Danny Trevathan has played all but one of Denver's defensive snaps in the playoffs.
