Mays Out For Season After Breaking Leg
" DENVER (CBS4/AP) – Linebacker Joe Mays is out for the season after suffering a serious injury to his lower left leg in the Denver Broncos’ 34-14 win over the New Orleans Saints.

“He did have a fracture in his fibula of the left ankle,” coach John Fox said Monday.

Mays was injured while blocking for punt returner Trindon Holliday in the fourth quarter Sunday night when a Saints player inadvertently leg-whipped him, and he had to be helped off the field.

Mays has had a rough season since signing a three-year, $12 million deal in the offseason. He was suspended for a game and docked $50,000 for an illegal hit on Houston QB Matt Schaub and lost his starting middle linebacker job two weeks ago to veteran Keith Brooking.

That relegated Mays, who was making $4.5 million this season, to special teams duty.

“We all know that injuries are a big part of this game. You hate to lose a warrior, a guy that we all were counting on. He’s been a very big part of this football team. I spoke to him last night after the game and told him to keep his head up,” Brooking said on Monday "
