Danny Trevathan: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Trevathan suffered a knee fracture during training camp, and while he returned for Week 5, he only played three games before reinjuring his knee. He recently admitted that he probably rushed back from the injury, but Trevathan seems to be back at full health for team-organized workouts. Assuming no setbacks, the 25-year-old should bounce back to his 2013 breakout form, making him an intriguing target in IDP formats. He finished the 2013 season with 129 tackles (88 solo), four forced fumbles, three interceptions, two sacks, a fumble recovery and 10 passes defensed.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)This was merely a formality, as it was announced Monday that Trevathan would miss the rest of the season with a dislocated left kneecap. The 24-year-old originally hurt his left knee in October, and he reinjured the knee Sunday in the second half of the Broncos' 22-10 victory over San Diego. Trevathan was limited to just three games this season after playing a full 16 in both of his first two seasons in the league.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Given the severity of his injury, Trevathan will need some time to get back up to game speed.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)An MRI on Monday revealed a crack in a bone just above Trevathan's left knee. Slated to miss several weeks, he'll be placed on IR and be eligible to return after eight weeks.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Trevathan is consequently expected to sit out multiple games. The linebacker was sidelined for the first three weeks of this season after suffering a bone fracture below the same knee in August. Fortunately, the fracture sustained Sunday isn't thought to be as serious. However, considering the first incident kept Trevathan sidelined for a total of seven weeks, it appears usual reserves Brandon Marshall and rookie Corey Nelson will see expanded playing time at weakside linebacker until further notice.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Trevathan doesn't boast sterling draft or recruiting pedigree, and yet he turned himself into one of the league's better linebackers as a second-year player in 2013. Just one year after arriving in the NFL as a relatively unheralded sixth-round pick, Trevathan established himself as the top pure linebacker on the Denver defense, setting aside entrenched veteran Wesley Woodyard as the team's tackle leader. Trevathan finished the year with 129 tackles (88 solo), two sacks and three interceptions, tossing in three forced fumbles. That well-rounded production of tackles, sacks and interceptions probably isn't a fluke: while he tested poorly in timed drills, Trevathan was wildly productive at Kentucky, posting 287 tackles, five sacks and four interceptions in his final 25 games. With Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware harassing opposing offenses, Trevathan should continue picking off passes at an above-average rate. In addition, Woodyard is now playing for Tennessee, meaning Trevathan might have access to even more tackles than he did a year ago. The Broncos don't have any other tackle threats among their linebackers.
