Jerry Jeudy expects to play on Sunday night. He said if he feels the way he does today, he won’t even need any extra padding.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) September 23, 2022
Friday late update: Jerry Jeudy is officially questionable after getting a limited practice in on Friday. He is pushing to play and will likely be a game-time decision.
Friday update: Jerry Jeudy has returned to practice, per Zac Stevens. Jeudy missed Wednesday and Thursday’d practice, but getting in some work on Friday gives him a shot to play on Sunday night.
Thursday update: Jeudy didn’t practice once again, per Cody Roark. If he can get a limited practice in on Friday he’ll have a chance to go Sunday night.
Wednesday update: Jeudy won’t practice on Wednesday, per Aric DiLalla. Nathaniel Hackett said Jeudy is day-to-day, so it would appear he has a chance to practice this week, but we will need to wait to see.
Monday update: Jeudy is considered day-to-day, per Ian Rapoport.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy sustained a right shoulder injury in the first quarter of the the team’s 16-9 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday. NFL insider Ian Rapoport went on the Pat McAfee Show on Monday and mentioned that the dynamic Broncos wideout should be fine with the injury not being as serious as expected.
Jeudy went off in the team’s opener against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, catching four of seven targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in the loss on Monday Night Football. We’ll take a look at who will fill the gaps should Jeudy miss time.
Fantasy football implications
No Jeudy would of course mean more targets for Courtland Sutton. The fifth-year wideout was the Broncos’ top offensive weapon on Sunday, catching seven of 11 targets foe 122 yards in the win.
A potential waiver wire pickup could be third-year receiver Tyrie Cleveland. He caught two of three targets for 28 yards against the Texans and could potentially get more work.
