Broncos injuries: Teddy Bridgewater did not practice Wednesday

By Jon Heath

Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol and he did not practice Wednesday. It’s possible but not necessarily probable that Bridgewater will be cleared by Sunday, leaving the quarterback with an uncertain status going into Week 5.

If Bridgewater is not able to play this weekend, Drew Lock will start against the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road.

And some good news: Broncos cornerback Ronald Darby (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday and he is now eligible to be activated from injured reserve to the 53-man roster.
