ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Denver Broncos wide receiver Jordan Norwood tore his left ACL in practice Wednesday, ending what was shaping up as one of the league’s best comeback stories.
The fifth-year pro, who’d been cut five times by four teams and sat out all of last season, was Denver’s most consistent punt returner and had worked his way into the receiver rotation.
He had a 20-yard punt return and a 34-yard TD catch against Seattle in the preseason opener.
Wes Welker now moves up to primary punt returner with undrafted rookie Isaiah Burse another option.
