Injury Report: Teddy Bridgewater expected to return to practice on Thursday

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is expected to return to practice on Thursday in a limited capacity, Head Coach Vic Fangio announced.

"He's going to be able to practice some today … with the restrictions that a guy coming off a concussion has to go through for the league," Fangio said.

Bridgewater was expected to be a limited participant, but Fangio said he would be able to do some work with the starting offense.

Bridgewater remains in the league's concussion protocol after suffering the injury on Sunday against the Ravens. On Wednesday, Bridgewater returned to team meetings and was able to lift with his teammates.

Fangio also expected Diontae Spencer (chest), Pat Surtain II (chest) and Melvin Gordon III (lower leg) to return to practice on a limited basis after not participating on Wednesday. Fangio said he expects Gordon to be fine to play against the Steelers. Fangio noted that Graham Glasgow (knee) and Dalton Risner (ankle), who are both expected to be limited participants on Thursday, are trending in a direction to play Sunday, as well.

Tight end Albert Okwuegbunam is not expected to practice Thursday after suffering a hamstring injury during Wednesday's practice.

Fangio said it is possible Okwuegbunam will miss Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.
