During Tuesday’s OTA practice, Denver Broncos linebacker Deiontrez Mount suffered a leg injury that ultimately required him to be carted off the field.
Team beat writers noted Mount had previously limped off the practice field, putting no weight on his right leg before being carted into team facilities.

While it’s too early to say what the specific injury is here, the obvious concern would be ligament tears, which have already claimed the seasons of players around the league this spring.
Since being selected in the sixth round out of Louisville back in 2015 by the Tennessee Titans, Mount has appeared in 12 NFL games playing for the Titans, Indianapolis Colts and Broncos. Last season, his first in Denver, he appeared in seven games and was credited with six tackles.
