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.

Norwood was trying to catch a sideline touchdown pass from Peyton Manning when Houston cornerback Brandon Harris broke it up. Norwood landed awkwardly and was carted off the field.

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.
