Videos by OutKick

The Denver Broncos just suffered a significant blow to their backfield with the announcement that running back Javonte Williams has suffered a season-ending injury.

It happened in the Broncos’ 32-23 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Williams left the game with a knee injury leaving fans and teammates concerned.

“Obviously seeing Javonte go down, that hurt,” Broncos QB quarterback Russell Wilson said after the game. “Hopefully he’ll be OK.”

On Monday, the severity of the injury was revealed. Tom Pelissero reported that Javonte Williams had suffered a torn ACL and is done for the season.

Williams is in his second NFL season, and through four games he has put up 204 yards on 47 carries. During his rookie season in 2021, Williams had 203 rushing attempts for 903 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Williams is a major loss for the Broncos. This means the majority of the carries will have to go to a fumble-probe Melvin Gordon as ESPN’s Adam Schefter points out.

It’s not just a tough break for Williams and the team, Broncos fans are going through some things today.

It’s been a rough year so far for the 2-2 Broncos. We’re through just four weeks and their highly paid quarterback has already gotten boos at home and even been joked about during ESPN’s Manningcast.

Over the next three weeks, the Broncos will take on the Colts, Chargers, and Jets as they try to right the ship.
