Only two grabs Sunday

Jeudy caught two of three targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: None of the Broncos' big three wideouts reached 30 receiving yards in the game, as Denver's defense and running backs carried the day. It was Jeudy's poorest performance in four games since returning to the lineup, and he'll look to bounce back in Week 13 against Kansas City.

Leads Denver in catches Sunday

Jeudy caught six of nine targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Eagles. He also gained three yards on his only carry.

Analysis: The second-year wideout led the Broncos in receptions and targets, but Jeudy's longest grab went for only 14 yards and both Albert Okwuegbunam and Noah Fant produced more yardage than any Denver WR on the day. Jeudy has quickly regained a prime spot in the team's passing game since returning from his ankle injury, catching 12 of 17 targets for 117 yards over the last two games heading into a Week 11 bye.

Sees eight targets

Jeudy recorded six receptions on eight targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Jeudy saw an increased workload in his second game back from a serious ankle injury, a positive sign particularly given that the Broncos were ahead for the entirety of the game. He recorded long receptions of 25, 20 and 16 yards, with the rest of his receptions racking up minimal yardage. Jeudy should be fully ramped up heading into a Week 10 matchup against the Eagles.

Leads team in catches in return

Jeudy caught all four of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over Washington.

Analysis: Per George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette, the receiver's ankle was sore late in the game as he saw his first action since Week 1, but Jeudy still led the Broncos in catches. Teddy Bridgewater and the passing game weren't able to take advantage of a plus matchup against Washington, but Jeudy could see bigger volume in Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Activated off IR

Jeudy (ankle) has been activated off the Broncos' IR and is on track to play in Sunday's matchup with Washington, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Jeudy had been trending in this direction, but his absence from Friday's practice caused some concern. It looks like the team was just erring on the side of caution, and the 22-year-old is on track to suit up. He will look to help get Denver's offense going, as they have struggled to move the ball conistently for much of the season. All reports from practice earlier in the week indicated he looked fully recovered from the high-ankle sprain that caused a six-week absence.

Oct 30, 2021 12:05 PM EST

Managing soreness, could still play

Jeudy (ankle) didn't practice Friday due to some soreness, and coach Vic Fangio said "we'll see" whether the wideout is activated for Sunday's game against Washington, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Fangio also expressed optimism Jeudy can still play Sunday, though it's a discouraging development in his second week of practice after being designated to return from injured reserve last week. The 22-year-old will likely need to show some improvement Saturday in order to be activated ahead of the roster deadline for Sunday's contest.

Oct 29, 2021 12:23 PM EST

Not spotted at Friday's practice

Jeudy (ankle) wasn't seen at the portion of Friday's practice that's open to the media, Jeff Legwold of reports.

Analysis: Jeudy said at Thursday's press conference that he's "back in action" and "ready to go" after being designated to return from injured reserve last week, but he's apparently not practicing Friday after looking good earlier in the week. The 22-year-old was expected to be activated from injured reserve and play Sunday versus Washington, but his outlook for this weekend now looks a bit murky.

Oct 29, 2021 11:35 AM EST

"Ready to go" for Sunday

Jeudy (ankle) appears on track to play Sunday, as the receiver declared "I'm back in action. I'm ready to go," in Thursday's press conference, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Analysis: Jeudy progress in practice will continue to be monitored before he is removed from IR, but all signs point to the second-year wideout making his return to the field in Week 8 against Washington. According to Mike Klis of 9News Denver, Jeudy could help to get the offense going, as Denver has struggled to move the ball through the air consistently for much of the season. Klis asserts that throwing the ball to Jeudy early in the downs may be the answer to avoid being in so many third-and-longs. In any case, the 22-year-old should return Sunday and provide a much needed boost to Denver's offense.

Oct 29, 2021 7:27 AM EST

Looking good in practice

Coach Vic Fangio said Jeudy (ankle) had a "good practice" Tuesday, Zac Stevens of reports.

Analysis: Fangio previously revealed that Jeudy received medical clearance last week but didn't have time to practice before Thursday's loss to the Browns. He's now expected to return 10 days later for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with Washington, after missing six straight games with a high ankle sprain. The Broncos will continue to monitor his progress in practice before they make a final call on removing Jeudy from IR before Sunday's game.

Oct 27, 2021 11:16 AM EST

Should be back Week 8

Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said Friday that he expects Jeudy (ankle) to return from injured reserve in advance of the team's Week 8 game against Washington on Oct. 31, Zac Stevens of reports.

Analysis: Jeudy was cleared to practice last weekend, and he apparently hasn't experienced any setbacks with his right ankle in the days that have followed. In fact, the wideout received medical clearance for Thursday's eventual 17-14 loss to the Browns, but Fangio said Jeudy was held out of the contest since the Broncos only held walk-through sessions rather than full practices Monday through Wednesday. With the benefit of a normal slate of practices during the upcoming week, Jeudy should be back to full speed for Halloween game and ready to settle back into a starting role alongside Courtland Sutton.

Oct 22, 2021 4:50 PM EST

Could return Week 8

Jeudy (ankle) is closing in on a return,'s Jeff Legwold reports.

Analysis: Coach Vic Fango said Monday that Jeudy had an outside shot to return for Thursday's game against the Browns. He didn't, and the Broncos lost a fourth straight game, but Jeudy could be back as soon as Week 8 against Washington. His return to the lineup will drop Tim Patrick to the No. 3 receiver role, though it could be Jeudy who gets most of the slot work in three-wide sets.

Oct 22, 2021 11:40 AM EST

Still on IR

Jeudy (ankle) remains on IR ahead of Thursday night's game against the Browns, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: With Jeudy not activated in advance of the contest, the Broncos elevated fellow wideout John Brown from the team's practice squad to provide depth behind Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick. Jeudy will thus presumably set his sights on a potential return to action Oct. 31 versus Washington.

Oct 21, 2021 10:24 AM EST

Less than 50 percent chance for TNF

Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Jeudy (ankle) has less than a 50 percent chance to suit up for Thursday's game against the Browns, George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette reports.

Analysis: Fangio did say, however, that Jeudy will resume running routes at full speed this week, so it seems that the second-year pro continues to progress in the right direction. Jeudy has yet to be activated back to the active roster, and his status will need to be monitored as Thursday's road contest approaches. Tim Patrick will once again operate as the No. 2 option in Denver's wide receiver corps if Jeudy can't go.

Oct 18, 2021 10:29 AM EST

Cleared to practice

The Broncos designated Jeudy (ankle) to return from injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: It's important to note this designation does not mean Jeudy will be able to play Sunday against the Raiders. It sounds like Jeudy won't quite be healthy in time for the upcoming Week 7 matchup against the Browns which takes place Thursday, but he's certainly on pace to suit up for the Oct. 31 battle against Washington if he misses the aforementioned prime-time affair. That timeline seems to track with the comments coach Vic Fangio made earlier this month suggesting Jeudy would be closer to the front end of the 6-8 week return timeline following a high-ankle sprain. Jeudy's practice status will be something to monitor next week as the team prepares for Thursday's contest.

Oct 16, 2021 12:48 PM EST

Progressing, but return date TBD

Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Jeudy is making progress in his recovery from a right high-ankle sprain, but a firm target date for his return hasn't been established. "In the last 10 days to two weeks, he's made good progress," Fangio said. "His return is not right around the corner, but it's getting closer."

Analysis: Fangio previously said Oct. 6 that Jeudy was eyeing a return at the front end of a 6-to-8-week timeline for the injury he suffered in the Broncos' Sept. 12 season-opening win over the Giants. The coach's comments Monday don't seem to suggest that Jeudy's potential timeline has changed for the worse or the better, so fantasy managers should expect the wideout to remain on injured reserve for at least one more week. In Week 7, the Broncos will travel to Cleveland for a Thursday night game, so it could make sense for the team to wait until a Week 8 matchup with Washington to bring back Jeudy and grant him extra time to get comfortable in practice.

Oct 12, 2021 9:22 AM EST

Aiming for mid-to-late October

Coach Vic Fangio confirmed Wednesday that Jeudy (ankle) is hoping to return at the front end of a 6-to-8-week recovery timeline, Jeff Legwold of reports.

Analysis: Jeudy reportedly is making good progress, but timeline estimates from mid-September (4-6 weeks) may have been too aggressive all along. James Pal mentions Week 7 against the Browns as Jeudy's possible return date, though it might make sense to wait until Week 8, as that would give the wideout another 10 days to prepare (Denver faces Cleveland on TNF in Week 7). Either way, Jeudy is expected to remain on IR for Weeks 5 and 6, leaving Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick as Denver's top wide receivers.

Oct 6, 2021 1:50 PM EST

Targeting Week 7?

Jeudy (ankle) is making good progress, with the Broncos now hoping he can return for Week 7 against the Browns, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Palmer mention Jeudy returning at the front end of a 6-to-8-week timeline, though multiple reports back in mid-September had the wideout estimated for only 4-to-6 weeks. Either way, Jeudy will miss Week 5 against Pittsburgh -- and perhaps also Week 6 against Vegas -- but the Broncos apparently think he has a shot to make it back for a Thursday game against Cleveland in Week 7 (Oct. 21). Once he returns, Jeudy should see a mix of perimeter and slot snaps, with KJ Hamler's season-ending knee injury freeing up more of the latter.

Oct 6, 2021 11:19 AM EST

Placed on IR

The Broncos will place Jeudy (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Broncos are expecting Jeudy to miss 4-to-6 weeks after he suffered a right high-ankle sprain in Sunday's victory over the Giants. That timeline makes it unlikely that Jeudy will be ready to go when first eligible to come off IR on Oct. 10 in Pittsburgh, but a return in Week 6 versus the Raiders could be in play for the second-year wideout. In the meantime, the Broncos are expected to turn to KJ Hamler to fill out three-receiver sets with Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, and all three pass catchers should benefit from added looks while Jeudy is sidelined.

Sep 14, 2021 1:28 PM EST

Multi-week absence expected

Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Jeudy will "miss some time" after an MRI confirmed the wideout is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Fangio didn't rule out the possibility of placing Jeudy on short-term injured reserve, which would entail a minimum absence of three weeks. Either way, Jeudy is looking at a multi-week recovery, and he can safely be ruled out for at least the Broncos' Week 2 game in Jacksonville. Before departing with the injury in Sunday's season-opening win over the Giants, Jeudy hauled in six of seven targets for 72 yards.

Sep 13, 2021 11:25 AM EST

Undergoes MRI

Jeudy (ankle) underwent an MRI on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Jeudy was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain after he left Sunday's game against the Giants, and he underwent X-rays that came back negative. While the results of the receiver's MRI aren't yet known, the team is evaluating several options that will likely force him to miss some time. If Jeudy is sidelined, Tim Patrick, KJ Hamler and Diontae Spencer should see increased roles in Denver's offense.
