Looks like the Broncos won’t have a catcher Jerry Jeudy for its season opener.
Jeudy will be out for “several weeks” due to the hamstring injury he sustained during Thursday’s joint practice with the Rams, according to a report by NFL Media.
Jeudy was carried off the field after falling during a drill and grabbing his right hamstring. After practice, head coach Sean Payton said that he was scheduled to have an MRI.
While it’s unclear how long Jeudy will be sidelined, a multi-week schedule would seem to mean the receiver won’t be available for Denver’s Week One matchup against Las Vegas, and perhaps beyond.
Jeudy, the 15th overall pick in the 2020 draft, the Broncos exercised his fifth-year option in the spring. Jeudy was Denver’s most productive receiver last year despite missing two games, catching 67 passes for 972 yards with six touchdowns. He also had four carries for 40 yards, giving him just over 1,000 yards from scrimmage.
