Broncos Rookie TE Tears ACL, Will Miss 2015 Season

IStockPhoto/Thinkstock(DENVER) -- Denver Broncos rookie tight end Jeff Heuerman tore his left ACL during Saturday's rookie minicamp practice and will miss the 2015 season, according to the team.

Heuerman was a third-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.  He became the second rookie to suffer a season-ending ACL tear during a non-contact practice.  The Jacksonville Jaguars' third overall pick, Dante Fowler Jr., suffered a torn ACL on Friday and is also expected to miss the 2015 season.

The Broncos were in jerseys and shorts for an afternoon workout. Heuerman was in the open field during a special-teams drill; he planted his left leg to cut and his knee buckled.  He was taken for an MRI Saturday evening, and it confirmed the initial diagnosis by the team's training staff that he had torn the ACL.

The 32-year-old Brown started this season with the Houston Texans playing in three games before being released last week.

Brown, who played for the Chargers during the 2012-13 seasons, joins a San Diego squad that has lost starting running back Ryan Matthews and backups Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown to injuries. He will compete with Branden Oliver and Shaun Draughn for playing time.

During Brown's 10 season NFL career, he has rushed for 5,332 yards and 38 touchdowns, while also catching 242 balls for 1,927 yards and two touchdowns.

The Chargers waived linebacker Kevin Reddick to make room for Brown.

Injuries Can't Stop the Celtics from Destroying the Magic

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(BOSTON) --  The Boston Celtics haven't played very well this season. That is just one of the reasons that makes the C's ability to hold the Orlando Magic to a franchise worst 56 points during an 87-56 victory so surprising.

Boston was also playing without starters Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo and three bench players. That is when you need your captain to step up, and Paul Pierce did, scoring 19 points, grabbing five rebounds and dishing out seven assists in the victory.

The Magic will get a chance to exact some revenge on the Celtics, when they face off again on Thursday, in Orlando.
