Okung, who signed a 5-year contract in the offseason, was given an IV and taken on a stretcher to an ambulance.

The Broncos had trouble protecting quarterback Trevor Siemian, and he was sacked twice and hit eight times throughout the game.

Okung was called for holding in the end zone in the fourth quarter, resulting in a sack and a safety in the 21-13 loss.
