Injury Report: WR Jerry Jeudy leaves practice with hamstring injury, to undergo MRI

(Qnnflash) – Denver’s starting wide receiver, Jerry Jeudy, sustained a hamstring injury during Thursday’s practice session, prompting plans for him to undergo an MRI, as confirmed by Head Coach Sean Payton.

The injury occurred during a joint training camp practice with the Los Angeles Rams. Addressing the situation, Payton stated, “It’s a hamstring. We’ll get an MRI and see where he’s at with it, but nothing more [to share].”

Jeudy has consistently led Denver’s receiving yards statistics over the past few seasons, boasting 972 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 2022. He also secured a touchdown during the Broncos’ preseason opener against the Cardinals.

Payton refrained from speculating on the implications of Jeudy’s hamstring injury until the team acquires additional information. He expressed hope that the injury won’t have a substantial impact on the team’s plans.

“It would be way too early to say,” Payton remarked. “Typically in our system, too, we’re bringing receivers in and out. He plays ‘Z,’ he plays in the sub position for us. Hopefully, it’s not anything long term.”

Joe Lombardi, the Offensive Coordinator, echoed the sentiment and indicated that the extent of Jeudy’s injury will only be known once the MRI results are available. Lombardi acknowledged the possibility of other receivers needing to step up in the Denver offense.

“I haven’t heard anything more than just watching him come off the field, but all injuries are unfortunate,” Lombardi commented. “We’ll see what the severity of his injury is. We’ve got a lot of guys in our room, some of them are going to have to step up. Things happen — I don’t think of it as being snake-bitten or whatever.”

This injury incident follows earlier season-ending injuries to wide receivers Tim Patrick and Jalen Virgil.
