Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan has another fracture near his left kneecap and is expected to miss several weeks.
Trevathan was hurt Sunday in his second game back from a broken bone below the left kneecap.
Coach John Fox said Monday this latest injury is above and to the side of the same knee but isn't related to the initial injury, which occurred Aug. 12.
Fox wouldn't say when he expected Trevathan back on the field. Trevathan returned in the sixth week after his first knee injury.
Trevathan was hurt when he was run over by two Jets players on a screen pass to Eric Decker on the second play from scrimmage Sunday. Brandon Marshall replaced him in Denver's 31-17 win.
