Broncos LB Josey Jewell out for season

Josey Jewell injury

Denver Broncos linebacker Josey Jewell is out for the remainder of the season. He suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the Broncos’ Week 2 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars that will sideline him for the rest of 2021.

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

Jewell was a fourth round selection by the Broncos in the 2018 NFL Draft. The native Iowan played college football at the University of Iowa, being selected to First Team All Big Ten in 2017 and winning linebacker of the year in the same season.

In the NFL, he has 207 tackles, just 3.5 sacks in three-plus seasons and one forced fumble. He has recovered two fumbles in his career. He has missed only one game’s worth of playing time up to this point, although he has not started in every one of those games. Jewell did play in and start every game of the 2020 season, however.

He will now miss 15 games in the longest season in NFL history.
