Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio told reporters Monday that wide receiver Jerry Jeudy will "miss some time" due to the high-ankle sprain he suffered in the third quarter of Sunday's win at the New York Giants.
Just like last season, a player who lands on IR can return after he misses a minimum of three games.
Jeudy torched the Giants and led the Broncos with six receptions for 72 yards before he was injured, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater finished the season-opening victory with 28 completions on 36 passes for 264 yards, two touchdowns and a 115.7 passer rating. Bridgewater connected with nine different receivers at MetLife Stadium, and the Broncos cruised to a comfortable 27-13 road win.
Denver next plays at the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1) this coming Sunday and then welcomes the New York Jets (0-1) to town for its home opener on Sept. 26.
