Expected to play Week 7

Coach Vic Fangio anticipates Bridgewater (foot) being able to play Thursday at Cleveland, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Bridgewater was listed as limited on Monday's practice estimate due to a foot injury, and he's likely to retain that activity level Tuesday after he was seen walking with a deliberate limp to the Broncos' indoor practice facility, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Fangio's subsequent comments indicate Bridgewater will be under center Thursday, assuming he gains clearance to suit up. Bridgwater will be facing a MASH unit on the other side in the Browns, who have 13 players on IR and 13 others on their injury report. Per Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com, Bridgwater indicated Tuesday the foot is still bothering him, so it will certainly be worth monitoring his practice and status leading up to the game. Fortunately, he's the first game of the week, so fantasy managers should have plenty of options to choose from if Bridgewater can't go.
