Broncos: Russell Wilson out; Jerry Jeudy fined

The Denver Broncos have said quarterback Russell Wilson will not be available for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Brett Rypien should therefore be the starting quarterback for the Broncos.

Wilson left Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs with a concussion.

Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was also fined $23,020 for hitting an official in the second quarter of the game against the Chiefs.

“I know they’re going to fine me,” the athlete was already anticipating on Wednesday, after scoring his first game with three touchdowns. ” That’s life. I know the consequences of this gesture and I will learn from it. »

After an incomplete pass from Russell Wilson to Brandon Johnson with 3:45 to go in the first half, Jeudy was pissed off and took off his helmet while still on the pitch. He started yelling at referee Tripp Sutter and hooked him with his shoulder as he turned towards the Broncos bench.

He received a separate fine of $13,261 for his unsportsmanlike conduct when he removed his helmet.

Jeudy could have been expelled on this sequence due to contact with an official. At that time, he had only gained 3 yards on a reception, but he ended the game with three touchdowns and 78 yards on eight catches.

He had been questioned about it after the game.

“I got held up on a game. I was frustrated because things weren’t going well for us. So I was playing with frustration because I wanted to make plays for my team. I was held back and I think that should have been penalized, but I have to learn to manage my anger and move on. »
