Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was carted off the field with an apparent hamstring injury during practice on Thursday, as per Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos.
Jeudy pulled up after running full speed during a play and then grabbed his hamstring, according to Stevens.
Broncos trainers helped him walk to the cart, which he left the field on. Trainers then helped Jeudy walk from the cart to the locker room.
Head coach Sean Payton confirmed it was a hamstring injury, and that Jeudy is getting an MRI to determine the severity, as per Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team.
The Broncos were practicing on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s preseason finale against the Los Angeles Rams.
Denver begins their season against the Las Vegas Raiders at home in week 1. That game will take place two weeks from Sunday, so it could be a challenge for Jeudy to be ready to play on that day, depending on the severity of the hamstring injury.
The Broncos already lost WR Tim Patrick with a torn left Achilles tendon early in camp and will miss his second straight season and WR KJ Hamler was released after being diagnosed with a heart condition.
Jeudy is entering his fourth season in the NFL. He was the Broncos 2020 first-round draft pick. Jeudy had 67 catches for 972 yards and 6 touchdowns last year.
Jeudy missed two games last season while dealing with rib and left ankle injuries and a right high ankle sprain in 2021 sidelined him for six games.
