Crick's back injury will require surgery and he is expected to land on injured reserve, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Crick has been dealing with the back injury since the middle of August, and while there originally was optimism surrounding his Week 1 status, it has taken a turn for the worse, as Crick could be out for the remainder of the season. The Broncos will likely provide an official update on the defensive end following surgery, but the team did sign defensive tackle Aytyba Rubin in light of this news.
