CLEVELAND – Broncos receiver Jerry Judy, who returned from a high ankle sprain in his first week, will wait another 10 days after he is not activated from injury reserve for Thursday night’s game in Cleveland.
Judy was slated for a comeback last Saturday, which means the Broncos have 21 days to put him on the 53-man roster or reserve for injury for the entire season. The match in Washington on October 31 will take place seven weeks after the injury.
By turning on the watch, Jeudy can participate in all team training. After his first round on Tuesday, he ran several routes and caught passes from backup quarterback Drew Locke.
Jeudy had six catches at 72 yards on September 12 against the New York Giants.
Inactive in the Browns’ play were running quarterback Mike Boone, attacker Camer Fleming, full-back Carey Vincent, defenseman Jamar Johnson, quarterback Brett Ripin, inner midfielder Baron Browning (concussion) and outer midfielder Aaron Patrick (ankle).
Boone missed the first five games with four injury and only played six attacks on offense, losing to Las Vegas.
The dubious but active list included defender Teddy Bridgewater (quads / ankle), left tackle Garett Bolles (knee) and defender Kayden Stearns (disease).
Bassey, Dawson Updates. Broncos cornerback Essang Bassey and defender / defender Duke Dawson, who had their ACL torn in December last year, may have been activated from this week’s physical inability list, but the team decided to wait until next week.
“We’ll probably start practicing them here at some point,” coach Vic Fangio said Tuesday. “We didn’t think this week was going to be doable because we don’t really exercise.”
Bassey and Dawson worked on side teams throughout the regular season. Players on the PUPPY list must serve a minimum of 1-6 weeks. The Broncos have five weeks to decide whether to activate one of the players or end the season.
Feat of Bridgewater. Losing to the Raiders on Sunday, Bridgewater averaged 71.4% of his passes and made three interceptions, only the 82nd time (at least 70% completion and three interceptions) since 1950, according to the Pro Football Reference search engine. …
This was the second time a Broncos quarterback had achieved such a feat. In 1981, Craig Morton was up 71.4% with four interceptions in a 28-10 win over the Baltimore Colts.
Bridgewater’s completion rate was 18 of 21 attempts at five or fewer air yards. The three unfinished balls are a throw, a pass with a bat and an interception.
Robinson’s Chance. Early in training camp, when starter Josie Jewell was injured (hamstring) and backup Browning (leg) had not yet started training, undrafted rookie Curtis Robinson was in charge of relaying game statements to protect the first team.
Robinson was cut after preseason but was called up to the training team for his fourth week of play in Baltimore (17 Special Team shots) and was signed to the 53-man roster on Tuesday.
“I didn’t see him often during the (preliminary) draft, but obviously I’ve seen a lot of him since then,” Fangio said. “With the injuries we have received, he will have to make a big contribution to the work of the special teams. We are confident that if he has to play defense, he can go there and know what to do. “
Communication settings. Minus midfielder Alexander Johnson (torn ribcage), the Broncos reached out to Mika Kiser, which meant a new level of communication for Justin Simmons’ safety.
“(Johnson) and I played a lot of games together, so when we get the same calls and certain looks, there was a certain point in time when I didn’t have to communicate with him:“ How are we going to play? this is? What does it look like? and we know, ”Simmons said on Tuesday. “This is my job (with Keeser and internal midfielder Justin Strnad). I’m in high school, so I can see the big picture. I have to be able to tell these guys what’s going on. “
In short. Recipient John Brown and outside midfielder Pete Taumoepenu were called up for the Broncos’ training team on game day. Brown played six attacks against Las Vegas and Taumoepenu was signed to the training team on Tuesday. … Former Broncos defender Andy Janovic was placed in Cleveland’s Injured Reserve on 12 October (hamstring). Janovic was traded for the Browns of choice in the seventh round of 2021, which the Broncos used to take defender Markiss Spencer. … Broncos Titend Albert Oakwuegbunam (hamstring) missed his third game in a row, so he has the right to pull away from an injured reserve against Washington. … Receiver Tyree Cleveland was active after being promoted from the training team. … Interior midfielder Barrington Wade made his regular season debut in the NFL.
