ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - A person familiar with the injury tells The Associated Press that Denver Broncos tailback LenDale White has a ruptured Achilles' tendon and is out for the season.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the Broncos hadn't publicly discussed the results of medical tests on White's right leg.
ESPN and Pro Football Talk first reported the seriousness of White's injury Friday on Twitter.
White was signed after Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter got hurt in camp last month. He had been released by Seattle this spring.
White was already scheduled to sit out the first four games of the regular season, his punishment for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
The Broncos could bring back Justin Fargas, whom they released last week.
