It is unclear how long Parks will be sidelined, but he said on Twitter that he will “be back sooner than you think.”
Parks, 25, has 17 tackles and a pass deflection this season. He has mostly been a reserve, though has made two starts. Pro Football Focus gives him a 56.6 grade, making him an average player (at least according to that metric).
Parks was a sixth-round pick by the Broncos in 2016 and has made 11 starts in 55 career games, logging three interceptions and a forced fumble.
The Philadelphia native is in the final year of a four-year, $2.4 million contract, and one of just four former Wildcats on an active NFL roster. The other three are defensive end Brooks Reed (Cardinals), defensive back Dane Cruikshank (Titans), and linebacker Reggie Gilbert (Titans).
