ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos hope Su'a Cravens can return to the team's active roster after Week 8, Head Coach Vance Joseph said Monday.
Cravens, who was placed on IR on Sunday and will undergo a procedure on his knee, would be eligible to return from injured reserve in time for the Broncos' Week 9 game against Houston.
After the way Cravens played Thursday against Arizona, Joseph hoped he could help the team much sooner.
"Su'a played really well Thursday," Joseph said. "He looked explosive, he tackled well. He looked good in space. As a high safety, he looked really good. So I was really impressed with Su'a. I was hoping his knee would respond the right way so he could play for us on Sunday, but it did not. He needs a scope to get it cleaned up. He'll be back in hopefully two months."
The Broncos were otherwise healthy for their Monday practice.
Cornerback Tramaine Brock was the only player who did not participate in the session. He was excused from practice with a personal matter but will return Wednesday, Joseph said.
