Jerry Jeudy Injured In Practice

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy suffered an apparent hamstring injury during a joint practice session with the Los Angeles Rams.

Potentially repeating a theme of losing games due to injury, Jerry Jeudy suffered a leg injury during a pre-season practice session. According to Broncos beat writer, Mike Klis, Jeudy “pulled up” while running and grabbed the back of his leg. He was helped off of the field and had to have teammates assist him onto the cart, according to observers. The Broncos were hosting a joint practice with the L.A. Rams at their facility in Englewood, Colorado.

Broncos coach Sean Payton confirmed to reporters that Jeudy injured his hamstring and advised Jeudy would have an MRI to diagnose the damage. “Hopefully it’s not anything long-term,” said Payton. A grade II or grade III strain could mean Jeudy misses 6-8 weeks, and a tear that requires surgery would jeopardize the entire season.

Jeudy missed 6 games in 2021 with a high ankle sprain and 2 games in 2022 with another ankle injury. Any time missed would mark three seasons in a row that Jeudy was not able to play a full season.

If Jeudy does miss time, Courtland Sutton would become the primary receiving target in Denver. Rookie wider receiver Marvin Mims would also be elevated in proposed target share and would have the first chance to become Jeudy’s positional replacement.
