Broncos lose guard Max Garcia to knee injury

By  | 

DENVER, Colo. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the injury tells The Associated Press that Denver Broncos left guard Max Garcia is out for the season because of a torn knee ligament.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because coach Vance Joseph was at practice and wouldn't be addressing the media until later. An MRI Friday revealed a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament.

Garcia apparently was injured during Thursday's practice, although he finished the workout and wasn't listed on the team's injury report.

The 3-6 Broncos were already was down two starters on the offensive line after losing left guard Ronald Leary last month and center Matt Paradis in their last game.
