Cornerback Tevrin Brandon was signed earlier this year to a three-year futures contract with the Denver Broncos. The blazer with 4.3-40 speed has his work cut out for him in making the final roster, especially since the Broncos drafted two cornerbacks—Lorenzo Doss (fifth round) and Taurean Nixon (seventh round).

But Brandon has the raw ability to play in the NFL. His prospects took somewhat of a hit (no pun intended) when he was struck by a vehicle in New Jersey over the weekend. He only sustained minor injuries and is expected to practice when the Broncos return to Dove Valley for organized team activities on Wednesday, according to the Denver Post’s Troy Renck.
Brandon, signed to a futures contract in April, was briefly hospitalized but is expected to practice on Wednesday when the team reconvenes for workouts. According to NJ.com, which first reported the accident, Brandon was crossing the intersection of Highways 71 and 35 when he was struck by what police believe was a black Ford F-150 truck. The truck fled the scene.
