Jordan Norwood Injury: Updates on Broncos WR's Recovery from ACL Surgery
JACK DEMPSEY/Associated Press

Jordan Norwood was hoping to earn a spot on the Denver Broncos roster, but a knee injury will end his season before it gets started.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported the receiver tore his ACL in practice:

Norwood was out of football last season but had 13 receptions for 137 yards in two games for the Cleveland Browns in 2012. In 2011, he racked up 23 catches for 268 receiving yards while appearing in 14 games.

Despite his relative lack of experience, the 27-year-old receiver had performed well for the Broncos in the preseason. In two games, he totaled four catches for 54 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown from backup quarterback Brock Osweiler.

He also returned two punts for 37 yards in the two preseason games.

This solid play could have given him an opportunity to have a role in the pass-heavy offense, but it seems like he will lose that chance. Look for someone like Greg Wilson to benefit from the injury.
