Chris Harris Jr., Shaquil Barrett miss Wednesday practice vs. Bears


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett were both held out of Wednesday's practice against the Chicago Bears as the pair recovers from injuries.

Harris strained his oblique muscle during Tuesday's practice while Barrett injured his hamstring, Head Coach Vance Joseph said Wednesday.

"[Harris] just couldn't go today," Joseph said. "Hopefully he can go Saturday [against the Bears]."

Joseph said Barrett's injury was minor and that he could hopefully play Saturday, as well.

For a moment, it seemed the Broncos had a more serious injury to handle.

Wide receiver Courtland Sutton, who has impressed during training camp, exited practice and went to the training room.

He returned a short while later, though, and Joseph said Sutton was OK.

"It was a knee, but he's fine," Joseph said. "Good news there."

Other Wednesday injury news:

Joseph echoed his hopes that safety Su'a Cravens would return to practice this week, and he added he hoped Cravens would play in Washington in Week 3 of the preseason.

Cornerback Tramaine Brock has had "no issue" in his return from a hamstring strain, Joseph said.

Offensive lineman Sam Jones, who was carted off the field during practice Tuesday with back spasms, may miss a few more days.

"It's a little bit worse than we thought," Joseph said. "He'll be back in two to three days."
