With the 2022 NFL season entering Week 12 action, the Denver Broncos are not anywhere close to where many thought they would be at the beginning of the year. It has been a disappointing season, to say the least, for the Broncos. Russell Wilson has been nothing close to the superstar quarterback the Broncos thought they were getting and no one knows what the future may hold or the franchise.
One major issue over the last few weeks has been health for the Broncos. Heading into Week 12, there won’t be anything different on that front.
According to a report from Mike Klis of 9News, both Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler are missing practice this week. At this point, there is no final report on their status for this week’s matchup with the Carolina Panthers.
In the middle of the struggles that the Broncos are going through, a matchup with the Panthers could not have come at a better time. Carolina is struggling just as bad, if not worse, than the Broncos. This is a game that Denver has to win.
Not having Jeudy or Hamler would be a big blow to the offense. Jeudy has had a solid season thus far, catching 30 passes for 449 yards and three touchdowns. Hamler, on the other hand, has only caught even passes for 165 yards and has not found the end zone yet.
Hopefully, the Broncos will get some good injury news on at least one of these two receivers as the week progresses. If not, Denver will have to make do with what they have on the field.
Expect to hear more updates in the coming days about the status of both Jeudy and Hamler.
