A pair of knee injuries have forced Brian Dawkins to miss a total of five games in his 15th NFL season.
That meant five Sundays of watching as the Broncos took the field without him. Adding to that frustration, his team lost all five of those games.
Dawkins, who missed all three games on the team’s recently completed road trip, hopes to return to the field on Sunday against Houston at INVESCO Field at Mile High. The veteran safety wants to help his team complete a strong finish to an otherwise disappointing season.
“Sitting back and watching my guys out there going through what they’re going through and not being in it with them, it is a tough, tough pill to swallow,” Dawkins said. “So, being out there with them again is a relief for me — a tremendous relief.”
