The Denver Broncos have received another concerning injury update involving one of their top offensive weapons.
Fourth-year wideout Jerry Jeudy was carted off during Broncos’ practice on Thursday after suffering a hamstring injury. Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, the injury will sideline Jeudy for multiple weeks.
Though it’s not believed to be serious, Rapoport added that his status for the club’s Week 1 home game against the Las Vegas Raiders is now in jeopardy.
It’s relieving for the Broncos that Jeudy’s injury shouldn’t keep him out long-term, but at the same time, it’s also concerning that he may have to some action. They already lost a key wideout, Tim Patrick, for the year after tearing his left Achilles in practice.
So it’s quite possible that the Broncos’ three-headed monster at wide receiver will have only Courtland Sutton to open the year. It’s not ideal for a team that paid the New Orleans Saints a hefty price to acquire head coach Sean Payton, hoping that the future Hall of Famer can help Russell Wilson rebound after a rough 2022 season.
Jeudy had his best season in 2022, recording 67 receptions for 972 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games on a Denver team that finished with the league’s worst scoring offense.
Through his first three NFL seasons, the Alabama product has 157 receptions for 2,295 yards and nine touchdowns.
