ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Denver Broncos defensive tackle Ty Warren will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair his partially torn right triceps.
Coach John Fox said Thursday that the Broncos won't place him on injured reserve. The team is hoping he can return to play in November.
Warren was the Broncos' top free agency acquisition, signing a two-year, $8 million deal two weeks ago.
Warren was hurt during practice Monday after lining up alongside Marcus Thomas, who strained his right pectoral muscle during a 1-on-1 drill. Minutes later, Warren was hurt during a 9-on-7 team drill.
