#BroncosCamp Injury Report: TE Albert Okwuegbunam misses practice with hip injury

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Rookie tight end Albert Okwuegbunam did not practice Thursday and is not expected to practice Friday night at Empower Field at Mile High, Head Coach Vic Fangio announced Thursday.

Okwuegbunam has a "little hip problem," according to Fangio. He said it was tightness or a pull, but he wasn't entirely sure of the nature of the injury.

Andrew Beck, Bradley Chubb (knee), Troy Fumagalli (abdomen), Graham Glasgow (ankle) and Austin Fort (knee) are also expected to miss Friday's practice.

"[Beck has] a little tightness in his back right now," Fangio said. "I think he'll be fine [and] be ready to roll by next week."

Chubb and Glasgow, who exited Saturday's practice at the stadium, observed practice on Thursday and Glasgow got in some light work alongside wide receiver KJ Hamler (hamstring).

Linebacker Todd Davis (calf) returned to practice for the first time since Aug. 20 and participated in individual drills with the inside linebackers.

Alijah Holder, Michael Ojemudia and Juwann Winfree continued to work in individual drills with their position groups.

The only other player to sit out Thursday's practice was safety Kareem Jackson, who received the day off.

"Kareem just begged me for a vet day, so I relented after he put a cupcake on my desk," Fangio said.

The flavor of the cupcake in question was unimportant.

"It doesn't matter," Fangio said. "I've never had a bad cupcake. I like them all."
