Bennie Fowler has elbow fracture

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Less than 24 hours after playing a starring role in the Broncos’ preseason opening victory at Chicago on Thursday, Bennie Fowler was in an X-ray room. The Broncos’ second-year receiver sustained a fracture on the outside of his right elbow while covering a Bears punt.

He had no idea.

Fowler stayed in the game without any problems, finishing with three receptions for 18 yards (6.0 average) and blocking another punt late in the second quarter that was recovered for a touchdown. But he woke up with discomfort and the images revealed the fracture, on the outside of the joint.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said Fowler appeared to have a firm grip on the team’s No. 3 spot on the depth chart. The injury won't require surgery but he'll likely miss a few weeks. Cody Latimer and Jordan Norwood are next up on the depth chart
