SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes and current Denver Broncos offensive lineman Garett Bolles suffered an injury and was carted off the field during Thursday Night Football.

Bolles and the Broncos hosted the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, October 8.

During the fourth quarter, Bolles suffered an injury and was carted off the field. At the time of his injury, Denver owned a 9-6 lead. The game went into overtime after the Colts made a field goal later in the quarter.

”Just saw #broncos LT Garett Bolles go straight to the x-ray room on the cart. A medical staff member was holding his ankle as the cart went by. Bolles was very emotional. Put no weight on it,” NFL Network’s James Palmer tweeted.

“Another potentially significant injury for the #Broncos: LT Garett Bolles was carted off after being rolled up,” Ian Rapoport of NFL Network added.

In 2017, Bolles suffered an injury that required him to be carted off the field. Despite the injury, he was able to return to practice a few days later.

Denver entered the game with a 2-2 record. Indianapolis came into the Week 5 matchup with a 1-2-1 record.

Thursday Night Football is streamed on Prime Video.

About Garett Bolles

Prior to his time in the NFL, Bolles was a standout player at Westlake High, Snow College, and the University of Utah.

In 2017, the Broncos selected Bolles with the No. 20 overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Before the 2020 season, the former Ute signed a four-year contract extension with the Broncos. Bolles’ deal was worth nearly $70 million. Following some early struggles with penalties to start his NFL career, Bolles has quickly become a solid offensive lineman for the Broncos.
