Ronald Darby is out for the season with an ACL injury, per Hackett.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) October 7, 2022
If last night’s eyesore of a loss wasn’t bad enough news for the Broncos, they now lose one of their starting cornerbacks for the season. Darby suffered the injury breaking up a pass attempt from Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan. It’s more incentive for the Denver offense to figure things out as they take a slight hit to what has been a stout defense to start the season.
In five games this season, Darby made 14 combined tackles, three pass deflections, and forced a fumble. Veteran K’Waun Williams will take over as the second cornerback behind Patrick Surtain, while Essang Bassey will likely be asked to step into a more significant role.
