Butt has been slowly worked into the fold this year, catching eight passes so far for 85 yards. The injury is a massive setback to Butt, whose season is over.
Brutal. Missed his rookie season last year recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee. This is his left. https://t.co/bMNVhgPQis

Butt tore his ACL in his final game in college, the Orange Bowl on January 1st, 2017. This triggered his draft stock to plummet allowing Denver to select him in the fifth round of the 2017 draft.
Butt missed the entire 2017 season because of the initially torn ACL from college. Now, he will miss another.
