Broncos LT Garett Bolles, CB Ronald Darby done for season following leg injuries – The Denver Post


Denver left tackle Garett Bolles is having season-ending surgery after suffering a fractured right leg Thursday night against Indianapolis, head coach Nathaniel Hackett told reporters Friday.

The injury occurred late in the fourth quarter when Colts defensive end Deforest Buckner, in the process of tackling Broncos running back Mike Boone, rolled onto the back of Bolles’ right leg.

“Garett, obviously, did not look very good there,” Hackett said after the game. “So we’ll evaluate there a little more. We’ve got to get in there and see him.”

Starting cornerback Ronald Darby is also done for the year, Hackett said. Darby tore his ACL during Thursday night’s game.

Bolles, the sixth-year player out of Utah, has started 82 games for the Broncos since being picked in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, $68-million extension with $40 million guaranteed late in the 2020 season.

After he left the game on a cart with 3 minutes, 58 seconds remaining in regulation, Calvin Anderson took over at left tackle.
