NFL: Broncos rookie RB Audric Estime (knee) out until training camp


Share post:

Denver Broncos rookie running back Audric Estime sustained a knee injury and is not expected to return until training camp, coach Sean Payton said Thursday.

Estime, a fifth-round pick out of Notre Dame, had left practice a week ago because of the injury. He had a “small scope procedure” to make sure there wasn’t serious damage, Payton said.

“He’ll be available at the start of training camp,” Payton said after the conclusion of the Broncos’ second week of OTA sessions. “So we won’t see him through the rest of these OTAs, but on the conservative side, he’s going to be just fine. It was all good news. And he’ll stay and rehab, but he’ll be full go at the start of training camp.”

Estime, listed by the Broncos as 5-foot-11 and 227 pounds, played three seasons at Notre Dame and had 373 carries for 2,321 yards (6.2 yards per carry) and 29 touchdowns in 37 games. Last season, he rushed 210 times for 1,341 yards and 18 touchdowns, and also caught 17 passes for 142 yards in 12 games.
