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."
Fangio previously said Oct. 6 that Jeudy was eyeing a return at the front end of a 6-8 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 Jeudy back, granting him extra time to get comfortable in practice.
