Broncos HC Vic Fangio confirmed on Monday that DT Jurrell Casey is, in fact, out for the season with a biceps tear.
You can expect the Broncos to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
The team is still doing tests to determine the exact severity but Rapoport says Casey’s season is likely over.
It’s another brutal injury for a Broncos team that has been hit as hard as any team in the league.
Casey, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Titans back in 2011. He still had two years remaining on his five-year, $37.431 million contract when he agreed to a four-year, $60.4 million extension that included $40 million guaranteed back in 2017.
Casey stood to make a base salary of $11.25 million for the 2020 season when he was traded to the Broncos for a seventh-round pick.
In 2020, Casey appeared in three games for the Broncos and recorded 14 tackles, including one for a loss, no sacks and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 20 interior defensive lineman out of 119 qualifying players.
