Story update: The Broncos announced that Teddy Bridgewater is questionable to return with a lower leg injury. See our original post below.

Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater appeared to be shaken up after being hit by Los Angeles Chargers defensive back Derwin James in the first quarter of Sunday’s game.

Bridgewater left the game to be evaluated by the team’s medical staff on the sideline and then went to the locker room, leaving Drew Lock to take over QB duties. Bridgewater rushed for an 11-yard touchdown to give Denver a 7-0 lead before leaving the contest with what appeared to be a lower leg injury.

Bridgewater was one of several Broncos players who went down with injuries in the first quarter.

Running back Melvin Gordon left the game after his first carry with a hip injury, but Gordon was back on the field on Denver’s next drive.

Later in the first quarter, left guard Dalton Risner left the game with a back injury. He was replaced by Netane Muti.

The Broncos’ offensive line also lost left tackle Calvin Anderson to a knee injury late in the first quarter. Anderson, who was filling in for Garett Bolles (COVID-19), was replaced by Quinn Bailey.

Denver also went into the game without right tackle Bobby Massie (ankle), safety Kareem Jackson (neck) defensive lineman Shelby Harris (ankle) and wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland (hamstring).

At the time of this writing, Denver is leading Los Angeles 14-0.
