Already without starting cornerback Ronald Darby and receiver Jerry Jeudy for Sunday’s game at Jacksonville, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said right guard Graham Glasgow is “iffy” to be available after experiencing an irregular heartbeat late in the win over the New York Giants.
“He’s doing a lot of tests and we’ll see what those bring back,” Fangio said before practice Wednesday.
If Glasgow, who was present for practice as an observer, is inactive, Fangio said Netane Muti will start.
Jeudy sustained his right high ankle sprain in the third quarter last Sunday and is out 4-6 weeks.
Fangio said Darby “kind of had some tightness of late so I’m not exactly sure when it happened,” and an MRI showed “a little bit of a tear.” He is out a minimum of three games.
Outside linebacker Bradley Chubb (ankle) and defensive end Shelby Harris (wrist) did limited work. Defensive end Shamar Stephen did side-field work.
Surtain steps in. Fangio said rookie Pat Surtain II will slide into Darby’s role at right cornerback and Bryce Callahan will remain the nickel back covering the slot receiver.
