Russell Wilson should have a solid core of wide receivers to throw at Denver this season.
Unfortunately, Tim Patrick will not be one of his goals.
Patrick suffered a torn ACL during training camp, ending his 2022 campaign before the start.
On Thursday, Wilson spoke to reporters about what a shock it was to see Patrick injured.
"It was devastating to see him go down," Wilson said.
"Made a great catch and he was accelerating, finishing the game, and [his] knee was off.
"Tim has been a true supporter. I've just been a true supporter ever since I moved here.
The leader in the locker room, a leader on the field, a leader in every way has gone about it.
He's still staying positive, he's still upbeat. He will come back stronger."
Patrick originally formed the Broncos out of Utah in 2018 as an incomplete free agent.
He had been a starter the last two seasons, and led Denver in touchdown receptions last year with five.
He had surgery earlier this week to repair a torn ACL and could return for OTA next spring.
Now with Patrick, KJ Hamler plans to become the Broncos' No. 3 wideout alongside Jerry Judy and Courtland Sutton.
