(AP) – Injuries have stifled the Broncos’ hopes for an explosive offense in 2021.

Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy returned last weekend after missing six games with a sprained right ankle, and tight end Albert Okwuegbunam missed three with a hamstring injury before returning last week.

Receiver KJ Hamler is on IR with a torn ACL and a vaccinated tight end Noah Fant is in COVID-19 protocol.
