Denver Broncos wide receiver/returner Diontae Spencer will be “day-to-day” after suffering a chest injury in Week 4, coach Vic Fangio said Monday.

Spencer (5-8, 170 pounds) suffered the injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s 23-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and did not return. Before leaving the game, Spencer had one target on offense and four returns.

After Spencer left, fellow receiver Kendall Hinton stepped up as a fill-in returner, gaining nine yards on his lone punt return.

Elsewhere on the injury front, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has entered the NFL’s concussion protocol and cornerback Pat Surtain is also day-to-day with a chest injury.

Fangio also said guard Dalton Risner (ankle) should be on track to return in Week 5. Broncos running back Mike Boone (quad) and cornerback Ronald Darby (hamstring) are also eligible to return from injured reserve to the 53-man roster this week, but it remains to be seen if they will be cleared to play in time for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
