Line judge leaves Broncos-Ravens game with broken collarbone

Sunday September 13th, 2015

Line judge Gary Arthur left Sunday’s Denver Broncos-Baltimore Ravens game after he was injured during a punt return in the first quarter. Arthur suffered a broken collarbone, according to the Ravens

Arthur was taken off the field on a cart but was able to climb into the cart on his own. His injury left the officiating crew with six members, a situation officials practiced during the fourth week of the preseason. 

Arthur, 58, is a native of Springfield, Ohio, and lives in Findlay, Ohio. He has been an NFL line judge since 1997 and has worked 15 postseason games in his career. He worked Super Bowl XLVI between the New York Giants and New England Patriots in February 2012.
