ENGLEWOOD, Colo. —The Broncos were without three veterans Tuesday with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett and guard Billy Turner all absent for the team's fourth organized team activity (OTA) practice.

"DT, he's at home with a personal issue and Shaq's being evaluated for a hip injury," Joseph said.

Joseph said the team doesn't know how serious Barrett's injury is yet, but he added that he expects to have more information as early as Thursday or Friday.

"It's the early stages of it right now, so he's being evaluated," Joseph said. "We should know more in a week's time, but that's where he is."

Joseph also addressed Turner's ankle injury, which occurred a week ago.

"Billy turned his ankle on the first day of OTAs with a semi-high ankle sprain, but he's feeling better," Joseph said. "He's out of the walking boot, so he should be out there in a week's time."
