ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos' tailback turnstile keeps on spinning.
LenDale White is out for the season after rupturing his Achilles' tendon, a person familiar with the injury told The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the Broncos hadn't publicly discussed the results of medical tests on White's right leg. ESPN and Pro Football Talk first reported the seriousness of White's injury Friday on Twitter.
White, trying to revive his career with his hometown team after a fallout in Tennessee and a short stay in Seattle, was injured in the second quarter of Denver's 31-24 exhibition loss at Minnesota on Thursday night.
White was signed after Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and Correll Buckhalter (back) got hurt in camp last month. He had been released this spring by Seattle, where Pete Carroll, who coached him at USC, is now coach.
Although he sprained an ankle two days after his arrival in Denver, White had come back strong. He scored twice in the preseason, including a 2-yard run Thursday night against the Vikings before he got hurt on a 9-yard run in the second quarter.
