Darius Fleming: Torn ACL

Fifth-round pick Darius Fleming tore his ACL during rookies mini-camp over the weekend according to Fleming’s agent Andy Simms.

Fleming was drafted to be a backup at the OLB spot but was most likely a bigger factor on special teams. Signs point to Fleming being placed on IR and with him signing his contract the day before the injury, he’ll stick with the team and have this season to rehab the injury.

Eyes will now be on seventh-round pick Cam Johnson who will get more reps with Fleming out.
