It sounds like the Broncos aren’t going to have one of their top receivers as they host the Chiefs this week.

After Courtland Sutton suffered a hamstring injury against the Ravens, head coach Nathaniel Hackett said on Wednesday that the Broncos are going to be cautious with the receiver. Sutton was one of the players Hackett said wouldn’t practice to start the week and his availability is in doubt.

It’s not looking good for this week for him,” Hackett said, via Aric DiLalla of the team’s website.

Sutton was questionable going into last week’s loss to Baltimore with an illness.

In his fifth season, Sutton has 52 catches for 688 yards with one touchdown in 2022.

Hackett also said Dakota Allen (hamstring), fullback/tight end Andrew Beck (hamstring), guard Dalton Risner (shoulder/back), kicker Brandon McManus (quad), and offensive lineman Tom Compton (illness) would not practice Wednesday.

Receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle), cornerback K’Waun Williams (wrist/elbow), long snapper Jacob Bobenmoyer (wrist), outside linebacker Baron Browning (elbow), defensive lineman Jonathan Harris (knee), and safety Kareem Jackson (rest) were limited.

  1. It’s not looking good because he likely won’t play, or it’s not looking good because he likely will play?

  2. This is a negative attitude. You have to always believe.

    Do you know who always believes? First ballot HOF QB and iron man Russell Wilson.

    This despite his bad luck of first playing behind terrible Seahawk OLines and now playing behind a terrible Broncos OLine. The latter was rated as one of the better lines entering the season but the results show otherwise.

    How can’t you hold a block for 3 seconds? 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi. That’s it! Russ spends less time than that on the toilet. And that’s in a week!

    If they blocked a little better and the play calls were fixed – way too many runs – so that Russ could cook, the Broncos could still make the playoffs and then watch out!

  3. As a Denver fan, I am not sure whether it is poor drafting or poor strength coaches or poor HC deciding to sit everyone in the preseason ( how’s that working out?) No matter what or how good you are if you can’t get on the field it doesn’t matter. From Jeudy to Sutton etc let’s start finding ways for players to stay on the field. At this point it doesn’t matter anymore, but let’s have a plan for next year.

  4. Mayfield looked more in sync with his team after 2 days than Wilson has through 12 games. That’s not a good sign.
