Word is that right tackle Ju’Wuan James will be able to return this season after injuring his knee during Monday night’s loss to the Raiders and Wednesday brought some other injury news about the team as well.

As reported on Tuesday, wide receiver Tim Patrick broke his hand in the loss and is set to have surgery to help repair the issue. A six-to-eight week recovery timeline was cited at the time of that report and that appears to be accurate.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that Patrick will be placed on injured reserve. He can be designated to return after six weeks and would be eligible to play again after eight weeks on the list.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the team will fill Patrick’s roster spot by bringing back wide receiver River Cracraft. He had one catch for 44 yards in eight games last season.

  1. Patrick is the better WR, but Cracraft is the better KR/PR. The Broncos have traditionally struggled in the return game (and currently have no defined KR/PR), so this is not bad news at all.

  2. Why? Is he really the only option? He was not good enough to make a team that has no depth on it to begin with. No one else wanted him. They have 1 WR I injury and they rush to bring him back? Again. Why? He will provide no value. Just play Winfred. The decisions this organization makes makes you realize why it is in the state it is in.

    Diontae Spencer was signed to be kr/pr. Dude is a stud in that role.
