Denver Broncos defensive tackle Jurrell Casey will miss the rest of the season with a torn biceps, coach Vic Fangio confirmed Monday.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection sustained the injury during Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"I was watching tape last night," Fangio said. "I saw the play kind of where it happened. You can see him reach for his arm. ... It was some point there in the second half, I believe. With a lot of injuries, they don't seem as bad as they end up being, and guys are able to finish, a la Bradley Chubb last year, who finished the game when he tore his ACL. That's what happened with him there."

The Broncos acquired Casey, 30, from the Tennessee Titans in March for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick.

He started Denver's first three games and played 48 of the team's 68 defensive snaps on Sunday. His season totals include 14 tackles, three passes defensed and two quarterback hits.

A third-round pick by Tennessee in 2011, he started 137 of his 139 games with the Titans from 2011-19. He made his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl last season with 44 tackles, five sacks and two fumble recoveries in 14 starts.

Casey's career totals through 142 games (140 starts) include 507 tackles, 117 quarterback hits, 51 sacks and eight forced fumbles.
