ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Linebacker Josey Jewell exited early during Monday’s practice after participating in a team drill.
Jewell observed practice for a few minutes before he walked into the locker room.
“[He] kind of tweaked his side a little bit, so I told [Head Athletic Trainer] Vince [Garcia] to take him in and start treating him,” Head Coach Vic Fangio said after practice.
The Broncos’ other starter at linebacker, Todd Davis, suffered a calf injury on July 18, the Broncos’ first day of practice, and has not practiced since.
Fangio last gave an update on Davis on July 27.
“He’ll still miss some time, but everything’s been good,” Fangio said in late July.
Tight end Jake Butt, meanwhile, continues to work toward a return to the field. Butt hasn’t practiced since July 20.
“He’s actually doing a little bit better,” Fangio said Monday. “[He’s] not ready to come out and practice yet, but he is making some progress.”
Wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton practiced for the second day in a row after a hamstring injury kept him out for five practice. Fangio said he has looked good in his return.
“I thought he’s had two good days of practice,” Fangio said, “and I think he’s ready to go and healed up.”
