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 finished tenth among linebackers with 129 total tackles last season.

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.

Sixth-round LB Danny Trevathan worked in the Broncos' first-team nickel package to open minicamp.

The Broncos are experimenting at linebacker with D.J. Williams' six-game suspension hanging over their heads. "(Trevathan) has attacked it really well as far as in the meeting rooms, in his playbook," coach John Fox said. "This game is so mental, and for a young guy, he's caught on pretty quickly."

Broncos agreed to terms with sixth-round LB Danny Trevathan on a four-year contract.

Trevathan is undersized at 6-foot-0, 237 pounds, but racked up huge tackling numbers at Kentucky. Nevertheless, he'll no doubt be ticketed for special teams if he cracks the Broncos' 53.

Broncos selected Kentucky LB Danny Trevathan with the No. 188 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Trevathan is size-deficient at 6'0" and 237 pounds, but he was a tackling machine for the Wildcats. Although he gets points for toughness, competitiveness, and effort, Trevathan's physical limitations will likely have him earmarked for special teams in Denver.
