Winn went down with 39 seconds left in the 1st quarter after a 6-yard run by the Chicago Bears Ka'Deem Carey.
Winn was wrapped up on the play by Bears center Cody Whitehair and forced to the ground as Chicago’s Josh Sitton attempted to block Winn into Zaire Anderson who ended up making the tackle.
Winn was announced this week as second on the depth chart at nose tackle, behind Domata Peko. Winn also began practicing as a long snapper this week in practice as an emergency resort on game days for Denver.
