ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos did not practice on Monday ahead of their “Thursday Night Football” meeting with the Colts, but quarterback Russell Wilson was among the players listed as limited on the team’s estimated injury report.
“[Wilson] got dinged up in the game, and he’s just a little sore today,” Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett said on Monday, “and we’re going to be sure to take care of him and get him treatment throughout the week.”
Hackett said the Broncos expect Wilson (shoulder – right) to play on “Thursday Night Football” against the Colts.
“Right now, he’s playing,” Hackett said.
Seven players were estimated as non-participants, including running back Javonte Williams (knee), guard/center Quinn Meinerz (hamstring), outside linebackers Randy Gregory (knee), Jonathon Cooper (hamstring) and Aaron Patrick (concussion) and safeties P.J. Locke (concussion) and Caden Sterns (hip/chest).
Hackett confirmed Williams would miss the remainder of the 2022 season, and he noted Gregory would miss some time.
Wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland (hamstring), cornerbacks K’Waun Williams (wrist) and Darius Phillips (hamstring), guard Dalton Risner (ankle), running back Melvin Gordon III (neck) and offensive lineman Billy Turner (knee) were also estimated as limited participants.
Denver will hold multiple walkthroughs on Tuesday before a small practice on Wednesday, according to Hackett.
The Broncos will release another practice participation report on Tuesday before announced their game statuses on Wednesday.
Safety P.J. Locke also left the game with a concussion.
D.J. Jones has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol, but the Broncos will continue to monitor him ahead of Sunday’s game.
Four Broncos starters did not practice on Wednesday as Denver turns its attention toward its first division battle of the season.
Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett also noted that OLB Baron Browning is doing well after leaving the game with a knee injury.
Browning suffered a knee injury, while Jones experienced a head injury.
“He’s doing a good job,” Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett said of Jeudy. “He’s doing everything he can. He wants to be out there. He wants to be out there for the team. We’ll see, continually, day by day.”
Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (rib/shoulder) did not practice for Denver, and the Broncos had 10 players listed as limited.
“We’ve got a lot of positive news from the standpoint of where they are right now,” HC Nathaniel Hackett said of Jeudy and Surtain. “We’ve just got to make sure we’re smart with it.”
The Broncos received “good news” on the two players’ statuses, Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett said.
Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett noted that the team will further evaluate Jeudy and Surtain on Monday.
