Injury Strikes On Day Two of Denver Broncos Training Camp

The Broncos are holding their breath following a trio of injuries.

Day one of Denver Broncos training camp passed without any major injuries, but unfortunately, the injury bug reared its ugly head in practice session number two.

Three Broncos—nose tackles Phil TaylorSylvester Williams—and right tackle Donald Stephenson all suffered injuries this morning. 

Taylor went down with an apparent knee injury early in practice.

“Little bit of a knee," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll get an MRI. We'll see what happened." Williams, who is entering the last year of his rookie contract, morning practice was also cut short. 

"I think Sly left the practice field today, [with a] shoulder," Kubiak went on to say. "As always, those are camp things. We’ll give you a better answer probably tomorrow or this afternoon.”

Stephenson, presumably ready to assume the starting right tackle position, fell victim to a more minor setback.

“Donald [Stephenson] rolled his ankle,” Kubiak said. “He finished practice. He’s okay.”

The news that Stephenson was able to return to the field is heartening, especially after how battered the offensive line was last season, but the injuries on the other side of the trench creates a fair amount of concern.

The 28-year-old Taylor was selected in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, where he spent the first five years of his career before joining Denver last February. Contingent on the severity of the injury, he'll compete for depth behind Williams in the interior of the defensive line.

We'll update the injury situation for Williams and Taylor as soon as we can.

UPDATE: Sylvester Williams is present at the Broncos afternoon walkthrough.
