Broncos running back De’Angelo Henderson was involved in a car accident on Saturday night, but avoided any severe injuries.
Team spokesman Patrick Smyth announced on Monday that Henderson was taken to the hospital as a precaution and released after suffering minor injuries. Henderson was at the Broncos facility on Monday and is expected to participate when organized team activities start next week.
CBS Denver reports that the crash occurred when a vehicle that was reported as stolen in Denver collided with other cars, including the one Henderson was driving, while trying to elude police. The driver of the car faces charges of vehicular assault, eluding, motor vehicle theft, DUI-Drugs, and several other traffic offenses.
After all, the Bolts are even more stacked than when they won six of their final seven games last season. New center Mike Pouncey brings a strong veteran presence to the offensive line, safety Derwin James was an absolute steal in the middle of the first round on draft night, and they might even get a boost if their top two picks from last year—wide receiver Mike Williams and guard Forrest Lamp—are able to actually get on the field consistently in 2018.
“It’s going to be a cleansing of the Cleveland Browns,” Jackson said earlier this year. “That’s what it will be.”
Jackson said he was doing so for charity (specifically, his foundation which works to fight human trafficking), and would pledge $100 for every Browns employee who jumped in the lake with him.
It would have been more of a punishment had he done so in the winter, but there’s a reason he didn’t. Jackson had a stent placed in his heart in 2014, and his doctors forbade him for plunging into the frigid right-after-the-season water.
This year, the Jaguars will play the Steelers on Sunday Night Football in November, they’ll play the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football in December and they’ll play the Philadelphia Eagles in an exclusive time slot from London in Otcober. Don’t be surprised if they’re also on national television when they play the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys in late-Sunday afternoon slots during the first half of the season.
