Broncos-Ex Jet Falah out for the year/Torn Achilles

Recommended Posts

Denver Broncos offensive lineman Nico Falah is expected to be placed on injured reserve after suffering a season-ending Achilles injury at practice Monday. The injury happened on Day 1 of the team's organized team activities.

Falah (6-4, 301 pounds) entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of USC with the Tennessee Titans last year. After failing to make the Titans' 53-man roster, he signed with the New York Jets' practice squad.

Denver signed Falah off New York's practice squad last year and he spent the final 10 weeks of the season on the Broncos' active roster. He is yet to appear in a regular season NFL game.

Falah tweeted Monday that he's keeping a positive mindset.

Had he not suffered an Achilles injury, he likely could have won the team's backup center job this summer. The only true center currently on the team's roster is undrafted free agent Ryan Crozier.

Denver is expected to have guards Connor McGovern, Dalton Risner, Sam Jones and Austin Schlottmann spend time at center this season. At the moment, McGovern appears to be the favorite to win the starting job.

After placing Falah on injured reserve, the Broncos will have an open spot on the 90-man offseason roster.

Sorry to hear that, hope he can come back and resume his career

Me too. I tore my Achilles twice the last time at the 21 mile mark of the Maryland Marathon. No fun. I wish him well.

Seriously!  Who writes and/or fact checks these articles.  It wasn't even written in passing....they mentioned McGovern twice and talked specifically about him being expected to win the job. lol

I think sometimes they feel that no one is going to read things that closely. No excuse for it.

It's a different Connor McGovern. Denver drafted a guy by that name 4 years ago.

Yes...bizarrely, there are two interior OL in the NFL called Connor McGovern.

Denver drafted Risner in Round 2. A guy who I actually like better than Bradbury.

Are you saying we dodged a bullet?

Risner is a beast and a tremendous athlete and will be a OL  future Pro Bowler IMHO.

Not really. Ice, rest, stretching etc is about it. Mine's been fairly well the last 35 years but I still have a lump right where it tore. Worse thing is that I was on a 2:53 pace.

I remember last year when Denver took him off our practice squad, and this board went crazy. Like we just lost Mangold on waivers. That said, hope the young man has a full recovery.

You realize that we're talking about MSN here.  Checking facts and reporting the truth are foreign concepts to them.

About Connor McGovern.  I'm a Penn State fan.  I didn't shed any tears when the Jets "missed out" on him in the draft.  Their Offensive Line play this year was, well, "offensive".  In my opinion he was over drafted, over rated and will be no more than "average" as a professional.

Sorry for Falah.  Don't like to see that happen to any young player.  Not even a bronco, or for that matter, even a  Patriocheat.
