Sunday, Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton took it upon himself to mark the one-year anniversary of his most difficult athletic day with a living, breathing effort that was one of his best.
"He's back," Broncos coach Vic Fangio said. "He's back."
A year ago, Sutton suffered a torn ACL in his left knee while attempting to make a tackle after a Jeff Driskel interception in the Broncos' Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The story said in Week 2 this year, Sutton worked the high-traffic areas in the middle of the field, made the tough catches in a crowd and added a 55-yard deep shot down the middle on the Broncos' first possession of the second half to help put the game away.
