DENVER – The Broncos didn’t escape unscathed from Saturday night’s game, with David Bruton appearing to absorb the most serious injury.

Bruton was seen in the locker room following the game being wheeled via stretcher to a waiting ambulance. The Broncos announced that Bruton was undergoing further tests at the hospital.

UPDATE: Sunday morning, Bruton was released from the hospital. “Just got home from (the) hospital. Thank you all for the prayers and get-well wishes,” he Tweeted to his 1,320 followers.

BACKUP STRONGSIDE LINEBACKER MARIO HAGGAN left the game in the third quarter with a injury to his right shoulder. He did not return to the game and is expected to undergo further examination on Sunday morning.

“I took on the fullback and it just felt like my shoulder was hurting and couldn’t go anymore,” Hagan said.

“We’ll have to wait and see. Results in the morning and ill get treatment. I feel like I can be back at practice on Monday but as a player you always think better. We’ll see what we find Sunday morning.”

Fox also listed safety Rahim Moore with a head injury, but Moore said he was fine. Moore did not return after his second-quarter hit on Bills receiver Donald Jones that resulted in a penalty.

“That was my last play. I was all caught up into all the hype and fans going crazy that I just wanted to walk off the field,” Moore said. “They were calling me, like, ‘Come on, let’s get out of here.’ I was fine, good. No pain at all.”
