LB Josey Jewell misses opening training camp practice with hamstring injury


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Fourth-round pick Josey Jewell missed the Broncos' opening training camp practice with a slight hamstring pull, and he will not return to the field until he is 100 percent healthy, Head Coach Vance Joseph said Saturday.

"It's minor," Joseph said. "We're being cautious. Obviously it's early in camp. We want Josey to get totally healthy. Hamstrings can be tricky. You push guys back too early, it can linger on. We don't want that, so we're going to make sure he's 100 percent before he comes back."

Jewell suffered the injury on Wednesday during the Broncos' first practice for early reporters.

Joseph also addressed wide receiver Jordan Taylor's injury status. Taylor missed the entirety of the offseason program and now sits on the Physically Unable to Perform list as he recovers from hip surgery.

Joseph did not confirm that Taylor would be ready for the regular season.

"We're not sure," Joseph said. "Right now he's on PUP. But obviously we like Jordan, so hopefully we can get him back sooner [rather] than later."

Wide receiver Kenny Bell also missed Saturday's practice.
