Broncos' Courtland Sutton has torn ACL, out for year
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has a torn ACL and is done for the season, per multiple reports.
Sutton went down during the Broncos' Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler tied to lead the team with 7 targets a piece while Noah Fant drew 5 targets and scored a touchdown for a second straight game. Those three should all see more volume in place of Sutton, with Jeudy likely benefitting the most. Drew Lock is expected to miss 2-6 weeks with a shoulder injury, but Jeff Driskel maintained pace with 256 yards and 2 touchdowns versus the Steelers. The Broncos will battle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.
Fant leads all Broncos with multiple targets this season in Reception Net Expected Points per target (1.31). He's averaging the fifth-most yards per route run (2.19) among all tight ends with at least 10 targets.
