James will miss several weeks, however, the injury is not season ending.
This offseason, the Broncos signed James to a four-year, $51 million deal with $32 milllion in injury guarantees.
The injury moves Elijah Wilkinson into the starting role until James is ready to return. Wilkinson started seven games in Denver in 2018.
