The Denver Broncos have made two game day roster moves ahead of their “Thursday Night Football” showdown with the Cleveland Browns. The team also made a Week 7 decision on wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, and news broke about the status of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Here’s what fans need to know.

The Broncos elevated wide receiver John Brown and outside linebacker Pita Taumoepenu to the game day roster for Thursday’s game against with the Browns. Both players will revert back to the practice squad after the game.

Players can be elevated twice per season without having to clear waivers to return to the practice squad. This marks the second time Brown has been elevated, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him officially promoted to the 53-man roster sometime next week.

Bridgewater is listed as “questionable” on the injury report with foot and quad injuries, but he’s trending toward playing on Thursday evening.

NFL Network’s James Palmer reported Thursday morning that Bridgewater is is “expected to start tonight.” KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis tweeted Thursday afternoon that “signs continue to point toward Bridgewater playing tonight.”

In five and a half games this season (he left Week 4’s contest with a concussion), Bridgewater has completed 70.2% of his passes for 1,514 yards with 10 touchdown passes and four interceptions.

Bridgewater has also rushed 15 times for 66 yards and he has been sacked 16 times this season. He has a 100.9 passer rating going into Week 7.

WR Jerry Jeudy won't play this week

The Browns activated wide receiver Jarvis Landry from injured reserve in time for Thursday’s game, but the Broncos won’t be doing the same with Jeudy.

Jeudy is still recovering from an ankle injury and Denver does not want to rush him back too quickly. With 10 days before their next game, the Broncos might be able to get Jeudy back on the field in Week 8.
