On October 6, 2022, Bolles and the Broncos suffered a 12-9 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday Night Football.

The former Ute was carted off the field after suffering a broken leg in the fourth quarter.

A day later, the Broncos announced that Bolles would miss the remainder of the 2022 season.

The Broncos ended the season with a 5-12 record.

This year, Denver posted a 1-2 record in the preseason. Bolles played in the first two exhibition games before sitting out the preseason finale.

The Broncos kick off the 2023 regular season at home against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, September 10 at 2:25 p.m. (MDT) on CBS.

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 become a star offensive lineman for the Broncos.

Previously, Bolles had only missed four games during his NFL career.
