WR - DEN - IR
Week 2 Outlook
Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is expected to take four to six weeks to recover from a high ankle sprain, placing him on Injured Reserve, per Ian Rapoport.
Jeudy avoided a season-ending injury against the Giants in Week 1, suffering a high-ankle sprain estimated to take up to six weeks for recovery. Jeudy's absence opens up opportunities for Tim Patrick and K.J. Hamler to post WR2 and WR3 finishes across the next four to six weeks. If either player is on your league waiver wires, strongly consider rostering them as WR3/Flex options during Week 2 in a favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Broncos placed WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) on IR.
This will keep Jeudy sidelined for, at minimum, the next three weeks. The second-year wideout is currently dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler should both see more work in his absence.
Broncos coach Vic Fangio confirmed that WR Jerry Jeudy suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Giants. The sophomore wideout is expected to miss 4-6 weeks of action.
It's a brutal blow for a player who we thought might make a leap in 2021. Jeudy hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 72 yards before suffering the injury. Courtland Sutton will operate as Denver's No. 1 wideout during his absence.
Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy caught six passes for 72 yards before leaving early with a diagnosed high ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Jeudy did what he does best on Sunday; he ran good routes, and he got open. He was Teddy Bridgewater's go-to receiver and was having a nice outing before getting rolled up on late in the game. High ankle sprains can be tricky to come back from, so fantasy managers should monitor the situation closely.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.
The good news is X-rays came back negative, so it appears as if Jeudy avoided a season-ending injury. The Broncos should provide further updates on his recovery timeline by Monday morning.
