Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is in concussion protocol, put his status for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in doubt.
Bridgewater took a number of big hits in the first half of Denver’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and exited the game late in the second quarter.
Broncos head coach Vic Fangio is not ruling Bridgewater out just yet, saying there is a possibility he could practice in a limited capacity Friday, paving the way for him to potentially play two days later.
“He can’t go out and full practice, but he may be able to do some stuff,” Fangio said Monday.
Bridgewater has received praise after leading Denver to a 3-0 start. He has completed 72% of his passes and thrown five touchdowns.
If Bridgewater is unavailable, Denver will turn to former first round selection Drew Lock, who has started 18 career games. He has tossed 23 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.
Denver also announced Monday that former Steelers wide receiver Diontae Spencer (chest) and rookie cornerback Pat Surtain II (abdominal) are day-to-day. Guard Dalton Risner is probable to return this week.
