The Denver Broncos designated wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) to return from injured reserve on Saturday. Jeudy is still on IR, but the team has now started a 21-day window for him to return to the active roster.

At any point within the next three weeks, the Broncos can promote Jeudy from IR to the 53-man roster. Jeudy suffered a high ankle sprain against the New York Giants in Week 1 and he was given a recovery timeline of 4-6 weeks.

That was five weeks ago, so it’s reasonable to assume Jeudy might be able to return as early as Thursday for a nationally televised showdown with the Cleveland Browns. Denver coach Vic Fangio was coy when asked Sunday if Jeudy will be able to play on Thursday.

“There’s a possibility, but I don’t know that it will happen,” Fangio said.

If Jeudy does not play this week, he will have 10 more days to recover before the Broncos host the Washington Football Team in Week 8. So if the receiver does not return this week, he would seemingly have good odds to be back on the field next week.

Jeudy caught six passes for 72 yards before injuring his ankle in Week 1.He totaled 52 receptions for 856 yards and three scores as a rookie last year.
