Report: Broncos receiving trade offers for several players

The struggling Denver Broncos have received multiple trade inquiries about star pass-rusher Bradley Chubb and wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler, ESPN reported Sunday.

The Broncos (2-4) brought a three-game losing streak into their Week 7 game against the visiting New York Jets.

Denver could be interested in acquiring draft capital after trading two first-round picks and two second-rounders to the Seattle Seahawks to acquire quarterback Russell Wilson in March.

Chubb, 26, recorded 5.5 sacks in the first six games but is playing in the final season of a four-year, $27.3 million deal he signed in 2018 after the Broncos selected him fifth overall in the NFL draft. He is earning $12.7 million in 2022.

Jeudy, 23, had 17 catches for 290 yards and two touchdowns in the first six games in his third season since Denver drafted him in the first round (15th overall) in 2020.

Hamler, 23, had just four receptions for 109 yards and no scores in five games entering Week 7. The Broncos took him in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jeudy and Hamler are both playing on their rookie contracts.

According to ESPN, the Broncos are also open to trading tight end Albert Okwuegbunam — one of five TEs on their roster. Also a 2020 draft pick (fourth round), Okwuegbunam, 24, had seven catches for 50 yards in five games heading into Sunday’s contest.

Reports: Broncos’ Patrick Surtain II, Jerry Jeudy both day-to-day

Denver Broncos cornerback Patrick Surtain II and wide receiver Jerry Jeudy are considered day-to-day after sustaining injuries during the team’s Week 2 win over the Houston Texans, NFL Network and The Athletic reported Monday.

Jeudy hit the ground hard during the first quarter of Sunday’s 16-9 win, injuring his ribs during a double-pass trick play. Surtain left during the second quarter with a shoulder injury.

The news means Denver’s No. 1 corner and one of its starting receivers still could be back in time for Week 3, when the Broncos host the San Francisco 49ers.

Surtain is coming off a strong rookie year after being selected ninth overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. He had four interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, and broke up 14 passes.

Jeudy missed seven games last year with injuries and finished his sophomore NFL season with 38 receptions for 467 yards and no touchdowns. The 2020 first-rounder has five catches for 113 and a touchdown so far this season.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy to miss time with high ankle sprain

Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy will miss time with a high ankle sprain, Denver Broncos head coach Vin Fangio said Monday.

Jeudy was carted off the field at MetLife Stadium with the Broncos leading the New York Giants 10-7 on Sunday, but hinted early Monday morning that his outlook was positive.

Fangio followed Monday with confirmation the Broncos won’t be without the receiver for long.

Jeudy will miss “at least a few weeks” Fangio said, opening the door for KJ Hamler and Tim Patrick to play larger roles.

A first-round pick in 2020, Jeudy caught six passes for a team-high 72 yards in Denver’s win over the Giants.

The Broncos play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and square off with the New York Jets on Sept. 27.

NFL injury roundup: Niners CB Jason Verrett fears another torn ACL

One of the unluckiest players in the NFL when it comes to staying healthy appears to have suffered another season-ending injury in Week 1 of the NFL season.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett suffered a right knee injury that both the player and team fear could be a torn ACL, according to multiple reports. Verrett is expected to have the injury examined further when the Niners arrive in West Virginia for a week of practices before next week’s contest in Philadelphia.

“We’re hoping for the best, but it’s crushing,” Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after his team’s 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions. “The bad luck he’s had and putting together these last two years staying healthy and how good of a camp he had. … I have got a lot of love for JV and respect him as much as anyone I’ve ever been around. So, I’m really hurting for him.”

Selected in the first round of the 2014 draft by the Chargers, Verrett played a total of just six games from 2016 to 2019 due to a torn left ACL in 2016 that never fully healed, followed by a torn right Achilles suffered during a training camp conditioning test while with the Chargers in 2018.

Finally healthy, Verrett, 30, signed with San Francisco before the 2019 season.

With Verrett likely out, the Niners could turn to a familiar face for much-needed depth — veteran free agent cornerback Richard Sherman.

“We have discussed it,” Shanahan told reporters. “I’ve talked to Sherm about it, too. Sherm is always a possibility.”

San Francisco also lost another player due to injury in running back Raheem Mostert, who left with a knee injury and did not return.
