DENVER (CBS4) – Broncos cornerback De’Vontae Bausby is headed to IR after suffering what the team described as a “cervical sprain” in Sunday’s game against the Chargers.
“I was awake the whole time,” Bausby said on Tuesday. “I was never unconscious, I just couldn’t move, but I was still talking and everything. After 30 minutes I was able to wiggle my toes and after a couple of hours I gained full mobility.”
Bausby flew back home with the team on Sunday night following the Broncos first win of the season, but he will go on IR this week.
Bausby said he plans to “come back and play,” but there is no timetable for his return. By placing him on IR Bausby will likely miss the rest of the season, but could return after eight weeks if the Broncos chose to do so.
The Broncos will bring in CB Coty Sensabaugh to fill the roster spot vacated by Bausby. Sensabaugh is in his 8th season in the NFL and has spent time in Tennessee, New York (Giants), Pittsburgh and Los Angeles (Rams).
The Broncos will host the Titans on Sunday. You can see the game at 2:25 p.m. on CBS4.
