Elvis Tears Pec, Likely Gone For Season

Just a few weeks after the Denver Broncos made him the NFL’s highest-paid pass rusher, Elvis Dumervil tore a chest muscle during practice Wednesday night during a one-on-one pass rush drill against offensive linemen Tyler Polumbus.  Elvis will likely require surgery and four to six months of recovery team.  A November return is possible, but the Broncos probably won’t risk carrying him on the roster that long.

Linebacker Robert Ayers is bummed about losing a teammate who led the NFL in sacks last year, but knows the show must go on. “Elvis wouldn’t want us to bow our heads and think it’s the end of the world,” Ayers said. “That’s not what we’re going to do. … We’ve got to keep the show going.”

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels emphasized that it will take a village to replace Elvis:

It may take a few people, may take some creativity for us. … Nobody is going to replace him as an individual. We know that. We’re not going to try to do that.
