Latest News Surrounding Jerry Jeudy
After Jeudy went down in training camp with what appeared to be a significant hamstring strain, he was expected to be out for a good portion of the start of the season. Fortunately, he was able to return in Week 2.
However, just two games later, Jeudy finds himself back on the injury report. This time, he is dealing with a knee issue.
It’s always at least slightly concerning when a player has any sort of injury. But the nature of football is such that almost every player is banged up eventually. It appears as though that’s really all Jeudy is dealing with.

We don’t have much in the way of details on Jeudy’s knee issue. This is all we have from beat reporters.
Jerry Jeudy was limited today at practice with a knee injury.

Sometimes, no news is good news. We know Wednesday practice reports aren’t overly important. If Jeudy missed practice entirely, there wouldn’t yet be cause for alarm. The fact that he was practicing at all is a great sign for his availability. This sounds more like maintenance than anything else.
What Does This Mean for Jeudy’s Fantasy Ranking?
The injury is not going to impact Jeudy’s spot in our PFN Consensus Rankings at all. He will either play or he doesn’t. At this point, we are operating as if Jeudy is fine.
Assuming Jeudy plays, he remains a startable WR3 for the time being. The Broncos have a plus matchup against an uninspiring Chicago Bears defense this week.
For now, fantasy managers can leave Jeudy in lineups. But if he flounders again, especially this week, it might be time to consider alternatives.
