Injury Updates: Jared Veldheer suffers knee injury against Chiefs


DENVER — Starting right tackle Jared Veldheer left Monday night's contest against the Chiefs late in the first quarter with a left knee injury. The Broncos announced Veldheer is questionable to return.

Veldheer went down awkwardly and limped to the sideline under his own power. Once he got to the sideline, Veldheer was assisted to the bench and then walked under his own power to the medical tent. He went to the locker room shortly thereafter.

Veldheer, 31, is in his first year with the Broncos. He started each of the team's first three games but left the Week 2 victory over Oakland with a concussion.

Billy Turner replaced Veldheer at right tackle.

UPDATE [7:52 p.m. MT]: The Broncos announced Veldheer will not return to the game.

UPDATE [8:11 p.m. MT]: Chris Harris Jr. went to the locker room about halfway through the third quarter. The 29-year-old corner was hurt on the Chiefs' second offensive possession of the second half. With Harris out, Adam Jones and Isaac Yiadom moved up the depth chart playing alongside Bradley Roby.

UPDATE [8:25 p.m. MT]: Harris returned to the game later in the third quarter.
