Denver Broncos offensive tackle Garett Bolles is set to miss the remainder of the season after suffering a broken leg Thursday, head coach Nathaniel Hackett confirmed Friday, according to Kyle Newman of the Denver Post.

Cornerback Ronald Darby is also out for the rest of the year with a torn ACL.

Bolles went down with under four minutes remaining in regulation after a Colts player appeared to roll up onto his leg. He was carted to the locker room after remaining on the field for several minutes.

The former first-round pick has been one of the most durable members of the Broncos' roster, having missed just four games since 2017. The Utah product missed time last season due to an ankle issue and a positive test for COVID-19.

Darby, meanwhile, left Thursday's contest prior to halftime and was ruled out for the second half. The veteran defensive back recorded 14 tackles, three passes defended, and a forced fumble in his second season with Denver.

Linebacker Josey Jewell is dealing with a knee sprain and considered week-to-week after also leaving Thursday's contest, according to Parker Gabriel of the Denver Post.

Denver running back Javonte Williams has already been placed on season-ending injured reserve after tearing his ACL in Week 4.

"I can only move forward, I can only go to the drawing board and grind and try to find ways to put guys in good positions," Hackett said Friday when asked about the Broncos' mounting injuries.
