Denver Broncos starting linebacker Danny Trevathan has a fractured left medial tibial compression fracture, the team announced.
Trevathan underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam today after being carted off the field.
He didn't suffer a torn anterior cruciate or medial collateral ligament.
Trevathan will miss six to eight weeks.
He'll be out for at least the first three games.
