Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) is expected to miss another game, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday. Broncos coach Vic Fangio seemingly confirmed that report before Wednesday’s practice, indicating Drew Lock is trending toward starting against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17.
Broncos inside linebacker Kenny Young (concussion) also missed practice Wednesday, and wide receiver Tim Patrick, safety Caden Sterns, offensive tackle Calvin Anderson and wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland were all placed on the COVID-19 reserve lists. Those players will not have enough time to clear COVID protocol before Sunday’s game.
In positive COVID news, center Lloyd Cushenberry returned to the active roster Wednesday after sitting out in Week 16.
Denver’s complete injury report from Wednesday can be seen below.
Denver will release injury reports again on Thursday and Friday. The Broncos are considered 5.5-point road underdogs this week.
