2019 Pro Bowl wideout Courtland Sutton came into 2021 with a ton of expectations. But Sutton’s season was unfortunately cut short after only 31 snaps, suffering a torn ACL in Week 2. However, as the team hopes to return to the postseason, Courtland Sutton says he looks forward to returning to the team ahead of the 2021 season.

Sutton had a breakout season in his sophomore season, as the 2018 second-round pick caught 72 passes for 1,112 yards and 6 scores. The Broncos bolstered their receiving core by drafting 2 wideouts with their first 2 picks in the 2020 NFL draft.

Sutton’s injury threw the receiver rotation out of whack in 2020. Instead of deploying Sutton as WR1 with Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler coming along slowly, the rookies were immediately asked to fill bigger shoes.

Courtland Sutton spoke about rehab and his fellow receivers

Sutton told the team’s official website that “the game plan” is to be full-go when training camp comes around.

“It feels really good,” Sutton said of his knee. “To be at the stage that I’m at right now, post-surgery, and to be able to go out and do what it do and it feels the way it does, it gives me hope and promise for the future because I’m only going to continue to attack rehab as I have. Even into the season. Just continue to make sure that I’m taking care of my temple. Making sure that my body’s right so I can go out there and perform with the boys.”

Sutton returning to form in 2021 would be huge for the Broncos, who could finally field the weaponry they planned to deploy last season.

“We have weapons in every category that you’re looking for,” Sutton said of Denver’s receivers. “Speed, size, catching ability, route running. I feel like we’re pretty diverse in our room. I was excited watching those dudes have the success that they had this past season. I’m even more excited to be able to be in there with them this upcoming season.”

Sutton coming back to the team will definitely bolster the Broncos offence. Especially with the starting QB still in question, a stout receiving core should help whoever finally does start come week 1 of the upcoming season.
