SEATTLE — Fullback Andy Janovich suffered a shoulder injury during the second quarter of Thursday's game against the Seahawks and was ruled out.

Janovich appeared to sustain the injury while covering a punt. Backup fullback George Aston replaced Janovich on the Broncos' next offensive series.

UPDATE [9:43 p.m. PT]: Tight end Austin Fort suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter and was ruled out. He sustained the injury while he was tackled following a 29-yard reception. Fort was carted off the field.

UPDATE [11:24 p.m. PT]: Head Coach Vic Fangio said both players will undergo MRIs upon the team's return to Denver.

"We’ll keep our fingers crossed," said Fangio when asked if Fort's injury was as serious as it appeared. "It might be.”

Fangio also said Janovich's injury could be more of a pectoral injury rather than a shoulder injury, but he said he wasn't positive.

“Same thing with him [as Fort] in that we’ve got to get that thing MRI’d and keep our fingers crossed on it," Fangio said. "I don’t know much more than that."
