Injury Update: Eason Heads to Europe - DenverBroncos.com - Andrew Mason
Wednesday, March 24, 2004 - ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Rookie seasons don't come with much more difficulty and frustration than Nick Eason's did last year. Three days into camp, Eason left without notifying the team, but returned three days later. A council of 10 veteran players voted to completely forgive him, allowing him to return to practice without as much as a fine. But just as Eason appeared to be rounding back into form, he incurred a partial tear of an Achilles tendon, ending his season before the Broncos could complete a preseason game. Eason spent the remainder of the season in rehabilitation and in the weight room, and will make his professional regular-season debut in NFL Europe on April 4 as one of the Broncos' allocations to the Scottish Claymores.
