The Denver Broncos have received some good news regarding players struggling with injuries. Prior to Sunday’s football game with the San Francisco 49ers, Denver could have had more reinforcements as the game kicked off.
Thursday practice report at the Denver Broncos
The Broncos continued their training readiness for the 49ers Thursday at UCHealth Training Center.
One of the events that surrounded the week revolved around star Patrick Serten, who suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday’s 16-9 win against the Houston Texans.
Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett considered a secretive day to day.
On Thursday, Sertin returned to the training ground in the Broncos in a limited capacity, and did site-specific drills.
Practice on Friday will be about whether or not Sirten plays on Sunday against 49 players.
The other players who were restricted on Thursday featured wide receiver KJ Hamler (knee/hip) for the second day in a row, DJ Jones (ankle), and attacking goalkeeper Quinn Meinerz (hamstring).
Wide receiver Terry Cleveland (hamstring), outside quarterback Jonathan Cooper (hamstring), defensive lineman Dremont Jones (neck), Mike Purcell (elbow) and offensive guard Dalton Reisner (elbow) featured in Thursday’s report as limited participants.
Meinerz’s change from DNP to limited came as a surprise given that his initial schedule was considered up to four weeks after injuring his hamstring during the first week against the Seattle Seahawks.
For the second set of limited players, an additional update will be provided on Friday by Nathaniel Hackett.
Wide receiver Jerry Goody (Ribs) did not participate in Thursday’s drill but was seen catching passes on the sideline, donning a helmet and pads before heading to the team’s field home.
Whether or not Jeudy’s practices on Friday will tell us about his potential situation against the 49ers on Sunday.
Cornerback Darius Phillips (hamstring) is listed as a DNP for the second day in a row.
Veteran linebacker Josie Jewell (calf) was fully involved in Thursday’s training according to Hackett.
He missed the first two games of the season but appears to be on track to make his regular season debut on Sunday.
He was joined as full backers by outside full-back Randy Gregory, corner back Cowan Williams (hand), Salameh Caden Stearns (hip), and offensive tackle Billy Turner (knee).
Coach Nathaniel Hackett will announce the final Denver Broncos injury report with updated game conditions after Friday’s practice.
