Broncos S David Bruton Jr. fractured leg in first quarter, stayed in game


We have heard of some players being very tough and continuing to play with certain injuries in games. However, I don’t think I have ever heard of a story like this one.

According to ESPN, Denver Broncos’ safety David Bruton Jr. fractured his leg in the first quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Instead of going down and leaving the game, he stayed in and finished playing.

It wasn’t until after the game that he realized the injury was much more serious that he first believed.

“I thought it was a bruise,” Bruton said. “There was a sharp pain initially and it just got worse and worse throughout the game.”

Head coach Gary Kubiak talked about Bruton’s reserve and toughness in the game.

“Played the entire game, amazing gut check,” Kubiak said. ” … Obviously David’s going to miss some extensive time here and we’ll how that plays in with the remainder of the season.”

Bruton was helped to the locker room by linebacker Danny Trevathan and a team trainer following the game. He said that the recovery time is between four and six weeks, but mentioned that his recovery time for a prior knee injury was much shorter than originally diagnosed.

“But they told me my knee was two to four weeks and I was out 11 days,” he said.

This is certainly the craziest story of the weekend for sure and is likely going to be talked about for some time. Campus Sports would like to wish Bruton a full and speedy recovery.
