Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater, OBJ set to play on ‘TNF’
Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is set to play against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night despite being banged up.
Bridgewater has been listed as questionable all week with a foot injury he sustained in last week’s game. He was seen limping at practice this week.
On the other sideline, Browns wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry are both active. Landry was on short-term injured reserve and hasn’t played since Week 2. Both will be essential for backup quarterback Case Keenum, getting the start in place of Baker Mayfield, out with a left shoulder injury.
Beckham injured his shoulder on a tackle last week.
Landry suffered an MCL sprain in the first quarter of a Week 2 win against the Houston Texans. The injury snapped his streak of 111 consecutive games with at least two receptions.
Browns starting right tackle Jack Conklin (knee) has been ruled out. Blake Hance gets the start at RT. With Nick Chubb ruled out and backup running back Kareem Hunt on IR, both with calf injuries, D’Ernest Johnson gets the start behind Keenum.
Bridgewater has started every game this season, completing 70.2 percent of his passes for 1,514 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions.
Broncos offensive tackle Garett Bolles (knee) was listed as questionable but is active. Safety Caden Sterns (illness) was also questionable against Cleveland but is active.
