The Denver Broncos are widely regarded as the best team in the NFL, but the team suffered a scare on Wednesday as linebacker Danny Trevathan was carted off of the practice field with an apparent knee injury.

There was some concern about the severity of the injury, but it appears that the Broncos have dodged a bullet.

After undergoing further testing and having an MRI on the knee, Trevathan’s results came back negative and there is some hope that he will be healthy enough to suit up and take the field in Week 5 when the Broncos take on the Dallas Cowboys.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post confirmed that the Broncos are optimistic that Trevathan will be able to play.

Many fans remember Trevathan for his bone-headed play against the Baltimore Ravens in the season-opener where he dropped the ball short of the goal line, but what they don’t realize is how important a player he has been to the team — especially in Von Miller’s absence.

Throughout the first four weeks of the season, Trevathan has totaled 30 tackles and he hopes to add to that number on Sunday.
