Reports: Broncos’ Sutton has torn ACL, Lock out 6-8 weeks

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton suffered a torn ACL on Sunday and is out for the season, multiple outlets reported Monday.

He caught three passes for 66 yards in Pittsburgh before being ruled out in the third quarter with a knee injury and leg cramps. An MRI on Monday confirmed the severity of the knee injury, NFL Network and ESPN both reported.

The Broncos (0-2) also lost quarterback Drew Lock to a shoulder injury during the 26-21 loss to the Steelers.

Sutton, 24, missed the Broncos’ season opener due to a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.

He caught 72 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games during a breakout 2019 season, earning a selection to the Pro Bowl.

A second-round pick (40th overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft out of SMU, Sutton caught 42 passes for 704 yards in 16 games as a rookie.
