AFC Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Texans


Broncos RB De’Angelo Henderson was involved in an automotive accident this past weekend, but only suffered minor injuries.

We’re thankful that Broncos RB De’Angelo Henderson sustained only minor injuries as one of several accident victims when a car collided with his jeep Saturday,” team spokesman Patrick Smyth announced on Twitter.

Henderson was taken to an area hospital as a precaution, but he’s already back at the team’s facility in preparation for the start of OTAs next week.

According to Mike Klis, a woman in a stolen vehicle caused the accident that left four people in the hospital including Henderson. Klis adds that Henderson became an inadvertent hero as he helped to stop the police chase of the stolen vehicle, which resulted in his Jeep being flipped upside down.

Henderson posted the following on his Instagram and included a picture of his Jeep after the accident.

With OTAs a week a way and a season that I’m competing for a significant roll, the most traumatic event I’ve probably ever had to deal with occurs. T-boned, airborne, flipped, and rolled. I plowed through my jammed door and exit my Jeep on my own. I’m truly blessed that God protected me through this accident. Without his favor I don’t know if I would’ve survived. I’m thankful to only came out with minor injuries and a few scrapes and bruises. Thank you to the Parker Police and South Metro Fire Rescue in Parker for getting to me asap, attending all my needs and transporting me to the hospital safely. Thank you to the doctors at Parker Adventist for treating me as a first class patient also. I’m very grateful and humbled to be alive. My family and I thanks everyone who has prayed for me over the last few days. My thoughts and prayers are with the other victims and I hope they all are safe and doing well. In the mean time I’m rehabbing and getting my body ready to participate in OTAs next week. Thanks everyone again!!! Jeremiah 29:11

Texans HC Bill O’Brien explained that they have a very specific plan to utilize DB Tyrann Mathieu and take advantage of his versatility.

“We talked about that when we were speaking to him during the process,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle. “We told him that we really do value – as you know – we value versatility, but we also understand that a guy needs to have basically one home. He needs to understand and master that one home, which is safety for Tyrann. Then, in different packages that are played less of the time, maybe he does something else.

“When you watch him in these sessions that we’ve had, you can see a guy that’s very instinctive, that moves well and that can probably do a few different things for us, but we’re going to start him at safety and let him hone in on that. Then eventually we will do other things in other packages with him.”
