He helped the Broncos rally from a 10-0 deficit to tie the Green Bay Packers, 10-10 at halftime in the preseason game Saturday night at eventually-to-be-renamed Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
To open the second half, Broncos Backup quarterback Paxton Lynch led a field goal drive for a 13-10 lead but he also suffered a right shoulder injury while getting sacked on the final offensive play of the series.
The team’s two stars -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Broncos pass rusher Von Miller -- each played only two series.
In the second half, nice runs by rookie tailback De'Angelo Henderson and Lynch moved the ball close enough for Brandon McManus to kick a 46-yard field goal.
Broncos backup and third-string players will play in the fourth and final preseason game Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals in Denver.
