Denver Broncos Expect to Have Top 2 Pass Catchers in Week 13

The Denver Broncos offense has been an absolute mess through 12 weeks of the regular season, but they should at least be able to put their best foot forward this afternoon against the Baltimore Ravens. NFL Network's James Palmer reports that wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton are expected to take the field on Sunday. Jeudy has missed the previous two games with an ankle injury suffered in the Broncos' Week 10 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Sutton missed practice Friday with a sudden illness.

Jeudy and Sutton are the Broncos' two top pass catchers, combining for 1137 receiving yards and four touchdowns through 12 games. They've been the brightest spots on what has been a disastrous year for the offense; since acquiring quarterback Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks, the Broncos rank last in points scored with an embarrassing 14.3 points per game. Jeudy's return and Sutton's availability should at least keep things from getting any worse.

Jeudy joined the Broncos as their 15th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Sutton entered the league as the Broncos' 40th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was signed to a four-year, $60 million extension in 2021.
