BREAKING NEWS: Rookie Ryan Torain carted off field

The details are still coming in, but it looks like rookie running back Ryan Torain was carted off the practice field during this morning's AM practice.

Rookie running back Ryan Torain injured.

Here's Reggie Rivers from KCNC in Denver:
DENVER (CBS4) ― Broncos rookie running back Ryan Torain was carted off the field during the team's 9-on-7 run-blocking period at practice Wednesday morning.

He was knocked off balance while carrying the ball and put his left hand on the ground to regain his balance.

He immediately collapsed on the turf grasping his left shoulder. Broncos head trainer Steve Antonopolus helped Torain walk to the sideline and tended to him for about 10 minutes before calling a cart to ferry the tailback off the field.

Torain, a 5th-round draft pick out of Arizona State, has been one of the stars of training camp. This injury likely means that he will miss the preseason opener in Houston on Saturday.

We will update as soon as updates become available.
