Denver Broncos left tackle Garett Bolles broke his right leg against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday evening, according to a report from KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.

The best-case scenario for Bolles would see him return after six weeks, but Klis tweeted Thursday evening that “there is fear he could miss more [time].”

This is the latest devasting injury Denver has suffered this year.

Before the season even started, the Broncos lost wide receiver Tim Patrick to a season-ending ACL injury. Last week, the Broncos lost running back Javonte Williams to a season-ending ACL and LCL injuries, and pass rusher Randy Gregory will miss at least four weeks with a knee injury.

Denver is also missing star safety Justin Simmons (thigh), and inside linebacker Josey Jewell (knee), cornerback Ronald Darby (knee) and outside linebacker Baron Browning (wrist) all left Thursday’s game with injuries.

With Bolles sidelined, the next man up on the Broncos’ depth chart is Calvin Anderson, who has started five games in his career.


Garett Bolles signed a 4 year, $68,000,000 contract with the Denver Broncos, including a $20,000,000 signing bonus, $38,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $17,000,000.

The No. 20 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft, Bolles has started 58 games for the Broncos across four seasons.

He was a lightning rod of criticism among the fan base during his first three years, regularly committing holding penalties and personal fouls — when he wasn’t being beaten in pass-blocking.

The Broncos’ offensive line and running game got much weaker Thursday night. Deep in the fourth quarter of Denver’s clash with Indianapolis, Bolles suffered what appeared to be a gruesome lower-leg injury.

Bolles went down after Broncos tackle Cameron Fleming fell on the leg. He crumbled to the ground in clear pain before being carted off, slamming the cart as it drove off.

The Broncos did not have an immediate update on Bolles’ condition.

The former All-Pro second-team selection went viral last week after making an “acrobatic” dive on a fumble return touchdown by the Raiders’ Amik Robertson.

Bolles made light of the play, and he even headed into Thursday’s game with a shirt spotlighting the moment.

It appears he won’t be back on the field for some time. Per NFL Network’s James Palmer, Bolles was emotional as he was being taken for X-rays. 


Natalie Bolles, wife of former Utah and current Denver Broncos offensive lineman Garett Bolles, said she had a good laugh at her husband’s failed tackle attempt during a game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders hosted the Broncos at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday, October 2.

With 3:15 remaining in the first half, Broncos running back Melvin Gordon fumbled the ball and it popped into the hands of Las Vegas’ Amik Robertson, who returned it 68 yards to the end zone for a Raiders touchdown.

Near the end of Robertson’s run, Bolles’ husband attempted to save the touchdown by diving for an attempted tackle. The Broncos lineman failed to make contact with Robertson, who ran into the end zone untouched.

The dive/failed tackle immediately trended on social media and included a tweeted from Bolles’ spouse.

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t die laughing,” Natalie tweeted about her husband’s attempt. “Good effort though, babe.”
