Suiting up Thursday

Bridgewater (foot/quadriceps) is listed as active Thursday at Cleveland.

During the Broncos' Week 6 loss to the Raiders, Bridgewater incurred 17 quarterback hits and five sacks, emerging from the contest with foot and quad injuries. The issues combined to limit his practice reps Monday through Wednesday, but despite it all he'll be out there for Denver's first offensive snap Thursday. The Broncos appear confident Bridgewater will be able to handle everything thrown his way with the decision to make reserve QB Brett Rypien inactive. As a result, the team has only dressed Bridgewater and backup Drew Lock.
