Guts through shin injury Sunday

Coach Vic Fangio noted that Bridgewater played through a shin injury during the second half of Sunday's 28-13 win against the Chargers, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. "He toughed it out," Fangio said. "He was nowhere near 100 percent."

It was an up-and-down performance from Bridgewater, who was forced from the contest on the Broncos' third possession. He yielded QB duties to Drew Lock for the rest of the first half, but Bridgewater was able to return after halftime and eventually finished 11-for-18 passing for 129 yards and one touchdown to go with two carries for 10 yards and another score. Bridgewater likely has maintenance in store for him during Week 13 prep, as his status will be monitored closely leading up to next Sunday's road matchup with the Chiefs.
