ENGLEWOOD, Colorado, USA (AP) – The odds of Teddy Bridgewater playing in Pittsburgh This weekend they rose markedly on Thursday, when he returned to practice, four days after suffering a concussion in the match against Baltimore.
The Denver Broncos quarterback worked with the starters, and the team placed him on the list of players with limited activity in the injury report. In addition, the quarterback remains under the NFL concussion protocol.
Bridgewater abandoned the game that Denver lost 23-7 to the Ravens at intermission after rookie Odafe Oweh hit him on the chin with his helmet.
The referees did not sanction the impact. There was also no punishment in the previous play, when Diontae Spencer, receiver and in charge of returning kicks, suffered a chest injury, as a result of a blow from cornerback Tavon Young.
Coach Vic Fangio considers that the two plays merited a yellow handkerchief, Oweh for hitting the quarterback overhead and Young for hitting a defenseless receiver.
Fangio sent recordings of the plays to the headquarters of the NFL and suggested that the league agreed. “They did answer me, and I’m not really sure if I should share this with you, but you can imagine it,” Fangio commented with a smile.
Substitute Drew Lock, who lost the title to Bridgewater in practice camp, he looked ineffective in his emergency appearance. Denver punted in his first four drives, and Lock threw a pass that was intercepted in the end zone, with three seconds remaining, on the final offense.
Lock looked for catcher Courtlad Sutton and never saw that running back Javonte Williams was unmarked down the middle. Cornerback Anthony Averett, one of three defensive players keeping an eye on Sutton, took over the delivery at the corner of the end zone.
The Broncos (3-1) visit the Steelers (1-3) on Sunday.
