    Default Elvis Dumervil out 4 Months Torn Pectoral Muscle

    Update (12:15): Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Dumervil will have surgery to repair the torn pectoral muscle and has will likely be out until "at least November." This means the Broncos are now faced with a serious decision as to whether they keep him on their roster for 2010 and risk him being unable to return (and wasting a roster spot in the process), or place him on IR and end his season early.

    It's worth noting that if a player like Darrelle Revis or Vincent Jackson showed up to their respective team's camp today and suffered the same injury, the likelihood of them receiving the long-term contract they're seeking would absolutely plummet.

    Of course, this is the nightmare scenario for the team in question: inking a star to a monster deal with a ton of guaranteed money, and then seeing that star get injured before taking a regular season snap. Neither scenario, clearly, is very enticing.

    Unfortunately you can't think like that when handing out contracts or every GM would be a psychological mess. Just can't worry about things you can't control. sometimes it's good and bad luck. Nobody likes to hear it but sports is real a lot of timing and luck
