ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan's broken leg will keep him out longer than expected.

The Broncos placed Trevathan on recallable injured reserve Tuesday.

That means the team's top tackler from last year can't practice until Nov. 26 and isn't eligible to play in a game until Denver visits San Diego on Dec. 14.

Trevathan reinjured his left leg Sunday in his second game back from a broken bone under his kneecap. On Monday, coach John Fox said this latest injury was to the top and side of his knee.

Trevathan's teammates were told Monday he'd be out six weeks, about the same timeline for his first injury. Now, it'll be eight weeks.
