Denver Broncos linebacker Warrick
Holdman has been released from a hospital after a 24-hour stay. He
was being treated for a spinal cord concussion following a
collision with a teammate at training camp.
The Broncos haven't said when they expect Holdman to resume
Holdman was injured yesterday when he tried to tackle running
back Mike Bell, who lowered his left shoulder and struck the
243-pound linebacker in the crown of his helmet. Holdman crumpled
to the grass and temporarily lost feeling in his extremities,
although he could move his arms and legs by the time he was taken
off the field to a waiting ambulance.
Holdman is a ninth-year pro in his first season in Denver after
spending the last two years in Washington. He is among several
veterans vying for the starting job at strong side linebacker.
