Nico Falah went down at Broncos practice today, and it doesn’t sound good for the offensive lineman. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports (via Twitter) that Falah is “suspected to have torn his Achilles.” Mike Klis of 9News in Denver confirms the news, saying Falah has torn his Achilles (via Twitter).
The former undrafted free agent out of USC joined the Broncos last October following stops with the Titans and Jets. The six-foot-four, 301-pound lineman made several cameos on Denver’s 53-man roster throughout the season, but he didn’t end up seeing the field for any games.
It’s a tough break for Falah, who had a good chance to earn a roster spot as a reserve lineman. The Broncos have lost a handful of offensive linemen this offseason (including Matt Paradis, Max Garcia, Billy Turner, and Jared Veldheer), and they’ve only added a pair of lineman in free agent Ja’Wuan James and second-rounder Dalton Risner.
