Broncos injuries: Jerry Jeudy did not practice Wednesday

·1 min read

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ribs) and cornerback Pat Surtain (shoulder) will not practice Wednesday, coach Nathaniel Hackett announced during his pre-practice press conference.

Hackett said earlier this week that the team is hopeful both players will be available for a Sunday Night Football showdown with the San Franciso 49ers in Week 3.

It remains to be seen if either will be able to suit up for SNF, but neither Jeudy nor Surtain are expected to be sidelined for an extended period.

If Jeudy does not play on Sunday, Kendall Hinton would be a candidate to get elevated from the practice squad. If Surtain is not available, rookie Damarri Mathis would likely be the next man up at cornerback.
