Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph announced that quarterback Josh Allen and safety/linebacker Terrance Mitchell will miss the rest of the season with injuries.
Joseph added, “In addition to the players who are currently in the hospital, the rest, including players that were in the locker room yesterday, are all expected to be out of the game for at least the remainder of the regular season.””
However, we appreciate the patience of the fans and staff as we continue to address these injuries.”
Joseph added, “In addition to the players who are currently in the hospital, the rest, including players that were in the locker room yesterday, are all expected to be out of the game for at least the remainder of the regular season.”
Joseph went on to say that the team will also look to rest some of its other starters, including starting quarterback Trevor Siemian and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.
“The Broncos will be ready for the next game and will continue to work diligently to make sure they are ready to play at the next level,” he said.
In his first media availability since the season ended, Allen told reporters that he’s “just happy” to be back and has been “going through the process of getting ready” for the game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Allen said he is “hopeful” that he’ll be ready to go against the Niners, adding, “I’m going to have a great game.”
Mitchell, who was also injured in the win over the Chiefs, said he’s just “getting through the day.”
Mitchell, who played in four games last season, said that he hopes to play against the 49ers, who he played with in 2015.
The Broncos are now 1-1 on the season, including a loss to the New York Jets on Sunday night.
