ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Three Broncos starters did not practice Wednesday as Denver began to prepare for their Week 10 game against the Raiders.
Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (shoulder), tackle Demar Dotson (hand/groin) and safety Justin Simmons (not injury related) did not participate in Wednesday's session. Both Jeudy and Dotson observed practice, while Simmons was not spotted during the media-viewing portion of practice.
Cornerbacks A.J. Bouye (concussion) and Bryce Callahan (ankle) both returned to practice on a limited basis after missing Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Head Coach Vic Fangio said Bouye passed the final test of the concussion protocol on Tuesday.
"Obviously, I think they'll keep watching him this week, but it looks good for him to be able to play," Fangio said of Bouye.
Tight end Noah Fant (ankle), wide receivers Diontae Spencer (shoulder) and Tim Patrick (hamstring), linebacker Joe Jones (calf), tackle Jake Rodgers (shoulder) and guard Austin Schlottmann (ribs) were also limited for the Broncos.
Fangio also announced that he expects to be without defensive end Shelby Harris during the Broncos' Week 10 game against the Raiders. Harris remains on the team's Reserve/COVID-19 list.
"It's a big blow," Fangio said. "He's been playing very, very well this season for us. He's probably having the best season of his career up to this point. He missed last week; he'll miss this week. It's a big blow any time you lose one of your better players, but we've got players behind him that will step in and give us the best and we'll find a way."
