ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Sixth-round pick Sam Jones suffered back spasms during Tuesday’s practice, Head Coach Vance Joseph said after practice.
Two trainers helped Jones walk away from the drill, and he was then carted to the locker room.
Joseph did not say when Jones would return to practice, but he did offer an update on guard J.J. Dielman, who left Monday’s practice with an apparent knee injury.
“Dielman had a knee sprain,” Joseph said. “Nothing serious. It looked serious early on, but [it’s] not serious at all.”
Safety Su’a Cravens was back on the field before the Broncos began their morning session, and Joseph said he expects him to return in the near future.
“[Cravens] ran today on the field,” Joseph said. “The swelling in the knee is down. So hopefully he can back on the field and practice hopefully [in] the next couple days.”
Cornerback Tramaine Brock, who returned to practice recently after battling a hamstring strain, seemed to show no lingering effects during Tuesday’s practice.
“He’s been back in practice for two days,” Joseph said. “So far, so good. He looks healthy, he looks quick again. So we’ll see.”
Joseph was not asked about the status of other injured players.
