The Denver Broncos received some encouraging news on Bradley Chubb on Wednesday. His procedure was about as good as it could have gone, which means he’ll only be out 6-8 weeks. The team went ahead and moved him to injured reserve, but we should expect to see Chubb back in action later this season
One issue that did crop up was a nagging knee issue with defensive lineman Mike Purcell. He was held out of practice today as they monitor that situation. Denver also had a whole host of players limited on Wednesday.
“Mike [Purcell] won’t practice today—Purcell,” Fangio said. “He’s just got a knee issue, but he should be fine. Everybody else—Courtland [Sutton], Tim [Patrick], Noah [Fant], Shelby [Harris] and Graham [Glasgow] will be listed as limited.”
On the New York Jets side of things, the big name that was a no go for practice on Wednesday was wide receiver Jamison Crowder. News also broke that rookie quarterback Zach Wilson has a groin injury that could be limiting him this week and into Sunday. That is a situation that will bear monitoring.
Here is your full Wednesday practice participation report for both teams.
