Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Could Face Discipline

The Denver Broncos battled the Kansas City Chiefs in a hard-fought 34-28 loss in Week 14, and frustrations boiled over at various points in the game. One instance included an irate Jerry Jeudy bumping an official after a play, and ProFootballTalk believes the wide receiver could be facing stiff punishment in the coming days.

Jeudy removed his helmet and unleashed a tirade following what he deemed a missed holding call, briefly targeting and accosting an official before leaving the field. The refs generously declined to call a penalty at the time, but Jeudy may not be so lucky once the league has a look at the footage.

Typically, any physical harassment of an official results in an ejection and even a suspension, but PFT reports none is expected at this time. Jeudy is likely looking at a serious fine.

Jeudy has been one of the lone bright spots in a lost season for the Broncos. He has hauled in 42 receptions for 587 yards and six touchdowns in 11 appearances for the team this year. Despite his efforts, the Broncos have stumbled to a 3-10 record through 14 weeks and rank dead last in scoring.
