Danny Trevathan placed on Denver Broncos’ IR-Recall – NFL.com
The Broncos have placed Trevathan on injured reserve/designated for return. In a corresponding move, Denver promoted linebacker Shaquil Barrett from the practice squad, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Trevathan missed the first three games of the season after fracturing a bone just below his left knee in August.
He will be eligible to practice again in six weeks and return to the lineup in eight weeks. As long as his knee cooperates, Trevathan will be back to face the first-place San Diego Chargers for the second AFC West showdown of the season in Week 15.
Although Trevathan was one of Denver‘s most valuable defensive players last season, the surrounding talent has been strong enough to survive without him this year.
