Friday update: Sutton was able to practice all three days this week, but is still considered a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Steelers, per NFL Network’s James Palmer. At the very least, he has a better chance of playing than he did last week.
Thursday pre-practice update: Courtland Sutton was “fine” after Wednesday’s practice, but remains questionable for Week 2 vs. the Steelers.
Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Thursday RB Phillip Lindsay will not practice today and WR Courtland Sutton came through Wednesday's practice "fine'' and is still questionable for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.— Jeff Legwold (@Jeff_Legwold) September 17, 2020
Denver Broncos No. 1 receiver Courtland Sutton is set to practice on Wednesday, per NFL Network’s James Palmer. Palmer expects him to receive a limited designation, Sutton was unable to play Monday night against the Titans.
#broncos notes:— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) September 16, 2020
- A.J. Bouye will most likely land on IR.
- Sutton will practice today but will be limited
- Lindsay is considered day to day by Vic Fangio with turf toe.
With Sutton out Monday, along with rookie KJ Hamler, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton saw the most receiver snaps. If Sutton returns against the Steelers this week, he would likely see work over Tim Patrick, but much relies on Hamler’s status as well.
In the end, Sutton is likely the only receiver you’d want to play in fantasy against a tough Steelers defense, as long as he looks good to go.
