Englewood, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Denver Broncos wideout Jordan Norwood has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees during a Wednesday practice and is out for the season.
The Denver Post was first to report the news, revealing that Norwood fell awkwardly at the sideline while going against cornerback Brandon Harris for a pass by quarterback Peyton Manning. He was carted off the field, then sent for an MRI, which revealed the extent of the damage.
"Appreciate the love n support from friends fam fans and the like. ACL, ShmayCL. Ill be back in no time. Blessed, favored, n in my Gods hands," Norwood stated on his Twitter account.
Norwood, undrafted out of Penn State, spent last season away from football. He posted 13 catches for 137 yards in two games with Cleveland in 2012, and has posted 36 receptions for 405 yards and one score for the Eagles and Browns.
He garnered the interest of the Broncos through the club's GM, Tom Heckert, for whom Norwood played in his previous two league stops.
