(Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images) During the Broncos 36-14 win over the Panthers on Sunday, two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Elvis Dumervil suffered a strained left shoulder and left the game.  On Monday morning, Dumervil will have an MRI, according to the Denver Post. Dumervil said he felt a strain but “nothing popped,” concluding, “it’s hard to pinpoint what happened at what particular time.  We’ll know (Monday) morning and see what happens.” Before he left Sunday’s game, Dumervil notched his seventh sack of the season, which ties for seventh-best in the NFL and second-best on the team (behind Von Miller‘s 10).  Dumervil’s five forced fumbles this season lead the team and tie for second-best in the NFL. In Dumervil’s absence, fourth-year defensive end Robert Ayers stepped up, recording five tackles, a sack, and defended two passes.  If Dumervil missing time due to his injury, expert Ayers’ playing time to increase. We will know more about Dumervil’s status after Coach John Fox meets with the media at 1 p.m. (MT) later today.  Check back for updates on Dumervil’s status throughout the week leading up to Denver’s home match up against San Diego this weekend.
