ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos were without three players Wednesday as they began to prepare for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Quarterback Drew Lock (right shoulder), running back Phillip Lindsay (toe) and cornerback Davontae Harris (hamstring) did not practice. Lindsay and Harris worked on a side field with trainers during the media-viewing portion of practice, while Lock observed without the shoulder sling that he wore during his postgame media availability on Sunday.
Lock and Harris suffered their injuries during Sunday's game against the Steelers, while Lindsay sustained his toe injury in Week 1.
"We considered putting [Lock] on IR, but as you said, there's a chance he may not have to miss three games, but at the same point, there's a chance he might have to miss four or five," Head Coach Vic Fangio said of keeping Lock on the active roster. "Rather than eliminate the possibility of him coming back if he's healthy enough, we've kept him on the active roster at this point."
Defensive end DeMarcus Walker and linebacker Mark Barron also did not practice Wednesday, as the team placed them on injured reserve with calf and hamstring injuries, respectively.
Defensive linemen Jurrell Casey (elbow) and Shelby Harris (neck), wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ribs) and safety Trey Marshall (hip/wrist) were limited during Wednesday's practice.
"My ribs are feeling better day by day, but I feel like it wasn't really a big hit," Jeudy said of his injury. "It was more like a hit in the right spot. Let's just say it like that."
Tackle Garett Bolles (elbow), wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland (hip) and tight ends Jake Butt (hand) and Albert Okwuegbunam (hip) were all full participants.
