The injuries keep piling on as the Denver Broncos left Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans even more banged up than before. One key player will be out for several weeks.

Denver Broncos banged up after Titans game

Injuries are a big part of the game, but a case can be made that the Denver Broncos have been one of the most injured teams in the league this season. Prior to Sunday’s game against the Titans, Denver was already without KJ Hamler, Justin Simmons, Baron Browning, Cam Fleming, and Andrew Beck. After Sunday, the Broncos could potentially be without K’Waun Williams, Billy Turner, Graham Glasgow, and Jerry Jeudy for some time this season.

Broncos cornerback K’Waun Williams is expected to miss at least four weeks as he prepares to undergo an arthroscopic knee scope, as reported by 9News’ Mike Klis.

As it pertains to Jerry Jeudy, his MRI came back on Monday revealing nothing serious regarding his ankle. He was carted off in Sunday’s loss and didn’t return. According to Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett, his status is listed as day-to-day.

On the offensive line, the Broncos have dealt with various injuries all throughout the season. During Sunday’s game, they lost center Graham Glasgow (shoulder) and right tackle Billy Turner (knee), both starters who did not return. Hackett noted that Glasgow is considered day-to-day and Turner is considered week-to-week.

At wide receiver, the Broncos received a boost from undrafted rookie free agent Jalen Virgil in Sunday’s loss against the Titans after he hauled in his first career catch for a 66-yard touchdown that gave Denver a 7-0 lead. If Jeudy is unable to go, it’s expected that practice squad wide receiver Brandon Johnson will be a gameday elevation.

Regarding the offensive line, if Turner misses this Sunday’s game against the Raiders, Cam Fleming could step in if he’s able to return from his quad injury that he sustained against the New York Jets. If Fleming is unable to return, Quinn Bailey is expected to get the start. With Lloyd Cushenberry on injured reserve and Glasgow considered day-to-day, rookie center Luke Wattenberg will likely start if Glasgow is unable to go.

The Broncos are in dire straights at this point of the season due to poor offensive production and injuries. A glaring statistic has floated around in the last 48 hours that put the Broncos’ season into perspective. If Denver could have scored at least 18 points in each of their games this season, they’d be sitting at 8-1 instead of 3-6.

Back to the grind as Denver now prepares to face a struggling Las Vegas Raiders team.
