Jerry Jeudy News

Appears in court

Jeudy, who appeared in Arapahoe County (Colorado) court Friday morning, was released on a $1,500 personal recognizance bond, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Per NFL.com, Jeudy was arrested Thursday on second-degree criminal tampering charges with a domestic violence enhancer, but he did not submit a plea and is next scheduled to appear in court May 31. In a statement Thursday, the Broncos noted they "are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information."

Hearing scheduled for Friday

Jeudy is scheduled for a hearing at 8:30 a.m. MT on Friday following his arrest Thursday in Arapahoe County (Colorado) on suspicion of criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette reports.

Analysis: According to Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown, "there was no physical contact" between Jeudy and the woman in question, and he has yet to be formally charged in the ongoing investigation, per Kieran Nicholson and Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post. Prior to Brown's statement, the Broncos posted one of their own, stating the team is "aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information," according to Mike Klis of 9News Denver. Friday's appearance before a judge could shed more light on Jeudy's current legal situation.

Arrested Thursday afternoon

Following his arrest Thursday afternoon, Jeudy is being held at the Arapahoe County (Colorado) jail on charges of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, a misdemeanor, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

Analysis: Per Mike Klis of 9News Denver, the Broncos noted in a statement that they "are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information." The 23-year-old wideout had been a regular attendee in the team's offseason program prior to Thursday.

High hopes for rebound in 2022

Jeudy admits Russell Wilson will help him to improve in 2022, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Analysis: After a largely disappointing 2021 season, Jeudy has an opportunity to rebound in a big way next season with the addition of Wilson at quarterback. The deal sending the veteran signal caller from Seattle to Denver is already paying dividends, as Jeudy has noticed Wilson's impact as a leader. "[He's] getting me better as well. He's going to help me a lot this year," the wideout said of Wilson. Additionally, head coach Nathaniel Hackett wants to use the vertical passing game more next season, which should open things up in the passing game. With Wilson throwing the ball, Jeudy and the rest of the Broncos pass catchers have a chance to flourish in 2022.

Quiet to close out season

Jeudy secured two of five targets for 30 yards in the Broncos' 28-24 loss to the Chiefs on Saturday.

Analysis: Jeudy's non-eventful return from a one-game stay on the reserve/COVID-19 list was certainly a downer for fantasy managers rolling with him in Week 18 league championship games. The quiet finish was in some ways a fitting end to a disappointing sophomore NFL campaign to the 2020 first-round pick, one in which he missed seven games overall and surprisingly never found the end zone. The talented 22-year-old did demonstrate some solid rapport with Teddy Bridgewater at times in their first season together, but it remains to seen if Jeudy will start 2022 with a third signal-caller in as many pro seasons given that Bridgewater is slated for unrestricted free agency and the Broncos may try to bring in competition for Drew Lock.

Off COVID list

Jeudy (illness) has been activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: As was Tim Patrick (illness), which sets the stage for the Broncos to have their top three wideouts available for Week 18 action after being without both Jeudy and Patrick this past Sunday against the Chargers. With Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) on IR, the trio are in line to catch passes Saturday against Kansas City from QB Drew Lock, who's expected play through a shoulder issue he picked up during Week 17 action.

Jan 5, 2022 11:57 AM EST


Placed on COVID list

Jeudy (illness) has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official web site reports.

Analysis: Jeudy, as well as fellow wideout Tim Patrick, won't be able to play until he clears the NFL's COVID protocols, with the report noting that Jeudy is not in line to be available for Sunday's game against the Chargers. For now, Courtland Sutton is not on the COVID list, and if available Sunday, he'd be part of a Week 17 wideout corps that would also include Kendall Hinton and Diontae Spencer, as well as Seth Williams and Travis Fulgham.

Dec 31, 2021 1:51 PM EST


Likely headed to COVID-19 list

The Broncos are expected to place Jeudy on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, leaving his availability for Sunday's game against the Chargers in doubt, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Denver cancelled practice Thursday due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the organization, and Jeudy and linebacker Bradley Chubb appear to be the latest members of the roster who likely contracted the virus. Assuming Denver confirms Jeudy's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list later Friday, he'll be a long shot to clear the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocols before Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, even if vaccinated. Tim Patrick (illness) is also on the same list and unlikely to play Sunday, potentially leaving Denver with Courtland Sutton, Kendall Hinton and Diontae Spencer as its starting receivers.

Dec 31, 2021 11:02 AM EST


Leading receiving Sunday

Jeudy caught three of four targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 17-13 loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: With Drew Lock under center, the Broncos' passing game found very little success, and Jeudy was the only Denver player to top 33 receiving yards. It was a solid rebound for the second-year wideout after he failed to catch a pass last week against the Bengals, and he'll have two more shots to score his first touchdown of the season beginning with a Week 17 tilt against the Chargers.

Dec 26, 2021 6:34 PM EST


Held catchless in loss

Jeudy failed to record a single catch in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Jeudy saw four targets in the contest, but he couldn't get anything going on a day when the Denver offense struggled. The 22-year-old played on just 69 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps, behind fellow wideouts Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton. This has been a disappointing season for Jeudy, and he has yet to find the end zone in the eight games he's played in up to this point. Trusting Jeudy, or any Denver pass catcher, will be difficult down the stretch. In Week 16, the Broncos visit the Raiders for a matchup in which backup quarterback Drew Lock will likely be under center. Fantasy managers may want to look elsewhere.

Dec 21, 2021 5:30 AM EST


Five catches against Lions

Jeudy caught five of six targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Lions.

Analysis: He led all Denver wideouts in catches, targets and yards, but tight ends Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam posted similar numbers to Jeudy as the team had little reason to stretch the field in the rout. The second-year receiver is still looking for his first TD of the year, but he has hauled in multiple passes in six straight games since returning from an ankle injury, giving him a reasonably secure fantasy floor heading into a Week 15 tilt against the Bengals.

Dec 12, 2021 7:20 PM EST


Leads team in receiving

Jeudy had four receptions on six targets for 77 yards in Sunday's 22-9 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Jeudy was the lone Denver wideout to generate any sort of separation against the Chiefs' secondary, finishing with the team lead in receiving production. The 2020 first-round pick has slowly become Teddy Bridgewater's favorite target since being activated from injured reserve back in Week 8. Jeudy is averaging four receptions and 45 yards in the four games since returning, giving him a decent base as a deep-league option heading into a matchup against the Lions next Sunday.

Dec 5, 2021 9:35 PM EST


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.

Nov 28, 2021 7:16 PM EST


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.

Nov 14, 2021 8:43 PM EST


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.

Nov 7, 2021 4:32 PM EST


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.

Oct 31, 2021 7:48 PM EST


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 ESPN.com 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.
