Broncos HC Vic Fangio said of WRCourtland Sutton‘s shoulder injury: “He won’t practice today but we think he will be limited (tomorrow). He will be day to day.” (Mike Klis)
Regarding Broncos running backs Melvin Gordon andPhillip Lindsay, OC Pat Shurmur said: “They are outstanding runners who both deserve to be starters. I have a feeling they will both be in there, hopefully an equal amount of time. In my mind it’s a good problem to have.” (Troy Renck)
Shurmur admitted that first-round WR Jerry Jeudy could see a larger role in Week 1 if Sutton is out: “With regard to Jerry Jeudy, he was going to be part of the plan anyway. Let’s say that Courtland doesn’t make it for whatever reason, then the whole group has got to kind of share the load. That’s the way it has always been and always will be. These kind of things are part of our game, so they’ve got to be ready to go. We’re preparing him to play anyway, so he may just have to take a few more snaps. Other guys will fill in, as well.”
Adam Schefter reports that Chargers C Mike Pouncey, who missed practice this week with a hip injury, is not expected to play in Sunday’s opener against the Bengals.
