The Denver Broncos offense will get a boost with wide receiver Jerry Jeudy returning to the lineup in Week 2 as they take on the Washington Commanders. The timing was good considering they lost tight end Greg Dulcich to a hamstring injury last week.
Denver’s offense will need all the firepower it can muster. Their offensive efficiency tanked after Dulcich left the game and replacing the tight end thread is going to be difficult given the rest of the tight ends on the roster are more run blocking tight ends. Jeudy will give them a dynamic route running threat to pair with Courtland Sutton’s jump ball abilities. Maybe that gives them an edge.
On the defensive side, the Broncos will lose edge rusher Frank Clark. That’s not good given the pass rush in Week 1 was absolutely non-existent. They will need to find a way to generate some pressure or it’ll be another long day for the defense.
Meanwhile, the Commanders get Chase Young back in the lineup. The Broncos offensive line struggled at times against Maxx Crosby and while Young hasn’t been as effective as Crosby, the concern there is warranted for Denver’s offensive line.
