Broncos-49ers inactives: Surtain, Jeudy, Jewell all active
DENVER — Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, cornerback Pat Surtain, linebacker Josey Jewell and defensive end Dre’Mont Jones are all active for the Broncos’ Sunday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Jeudy did not practice until Friday because of a shoulder injury. Jones missed Friday’s practice because of a neck issue he incurred in Thursday’s practice. But at game time, they are good to go.
Right guard Quinn Meinerz is also active, but he is not expected to start. Meinerz missed last week’s win over Houston because of a hamstring injury.
wR KJ Hamler also returns to uniform after missing Week 2 as he continues his recovery from a disclocated hip and torn ACL.
Denver’s inactives include:
- WR Jalen Virgil
- WR Tyrie Cleveland
- CB Darius Phillips
- S Delarrin Turner-Yell
- Edge rusher Jonathon Cooper
- RT Billy Turner
- DL Enyi Uwazurike
Of the 10 players the Broncos listed as questionable Friday, seven are active. Turner, Cleveland and Cooper are inactive after being questionable. Cleveland and Cooper suffered hamstring injuries during Thursday’s practice. Turner continues to work his way back from a knee injury and has been inactive for each game this season.
The Broncos also moved defensive end Jonathan Harris and wide receiver Kendall Hinton from the practice squad to the game-day roster. Practice-squad players can be promoted to the game-day roster three times in a season without being promoted to the 53-man roster.
This is Harris’ first game-day activation of the year and the second for Hinton. For Hinton, this is his second activation.
Second-round pick Nik Bonitto is also active. The Broncos deactivated him last week.
