After a longggggg recovery from knee injuries, Kentucky alum Danny Trevathan will make his return to the field under the lights tonight. The Broncos take on the 49ers tonight at 9 p.m. at Mile High.
According to reports, Trevathan will (try to) play 20 snaps, or around a quarter. He will play along side Brandon Marshall, the player who replaced him last season. Trevathan had not been showing much emotion until he took to twitter to discuss his return.

During his time off the field, Trevathan had plenty to do and even more to keep him motivated. His daughter Danoir was born in late 2013 and has helped him through this tough time, according to her mother.
“The day she was born, they laid her on my chest and he was like, ‘Oh, my God and she turned her head and looked at him. Since the very moment she was born, she’s been attached to that man. Those were her first words – ‘da da.’ Everything was always about Daddy. Since he’s been in training camp, she’s started saying ‘Mommy.’ But it’s always ‘Mommy, look! Daddy!’ when she finds pictures of him.”
