Broncos rookie Griffin out up to six weeks with broken leg


July 25, 2003
DENVER (AP) -- Broncos rookie running back Quentin Griffin is expected to miss up to six weeks after breaking his right leg Friday during the first day of training camp.

Griffin, Denver's fourth-round draft pick, broke his fibula after being kicked in the shin while running a pass pattern in the morning practice.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Griffin's leg will be immobilized for a couple of weeks.

`Fortunately, he's going to be back. He's not out for the season,'' Shanahan said. ``He should be back the last couple preseason games and get some playing time, so that's a positive.''

Griffin is just 5-foot-7 and 195 pounds but proved to be a durable and explosive runner at Oklahoma. He topped 100 yards 12 times and finished with 1,884 yards last season, both school records. He had 15 touchdowns.

Griffin was expected to compete for the backup spot behind Clinton Portis, last season's top NFL offensive rookie.

``It's always tough anytime you lose a player that's looking good,'' Shanahan said. ``It's really tough on him, obviously. It's tough on us. We'll get through it.''
