Reports: Broncos WR Sutton has serious knee injury

The Denver Broncos fear that wide receiver Courtland Sutton sustained a “significant” knee injury during Sunday’s loss in Pittsburgh, multiple outlets reported Monday.

Sutton sat out the season opener due to a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. He caught three passes for 66 yards against the Steelers before being ruled out in the third quarter with a knee injury and leg cramps.

Sutton, who caught 72 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns during a breakout 2019 season, is scheduled for an MRI on Monday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported.

Sutton, 24, was a second-round draft pick (40th overall) in 2018 out of SMU. He made the Pro Bowl last season.

The Broncos (0-2) also lost quarterback Drew Lock to a shoulder injury during the 26-21 setback in Pittsburgh.
