As for LB Von Miller, who left Thursday's game with a sprained left ankle, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Friday the team's medical staff will have to watch how Miller goes through treatments in the coming days. "I think the next four, five days will tell us exactly where he's at,'' Fangio said. Miller said following the game Thursday he was "confident'' he would be able to play Oct. 31 against Washington.

After their on-field work Wednesday the Broncos formally listed quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (foot) and left tackle Garett Bolles (knee) as questionable for Thursday night's game in Cleveland. Coach Vic Fangio said Tuesday the Broncos would have Bridgewater pick up the tempo some in Wednesday's work to see how Bridgewater's movement was on the injured foot. Fangio also said backup Drew Lock was not getting additional work with the starters in the walk-throughs.

On Tuesday, the Broncos signed linebackers Barrington Wade and Curtis Robinson to the active roster from their practice squad. The roster spots became available when linebacker Alexander Johnson (chest) and linebacker Andre Mintze (hamstring) were moved to injured reserve. Johnson will miss the remainder of the season. Wade and Robinson were with the Broncos throughout training camp while Robinson played 17 snaps on special teams against the Baltimore Ravens earlier this month.

On Teddy Bridgewater's left foot injury, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Bridgewater took part in Tuesday's walk-through and when asked if Bridgewater would play Thursday, Fangio said "I think so.'' Also asked if Drew Lock would get some additional snaps with starters in practice this week, Fangio said "no, not really.'' Later offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, when asked if he'd have to adjust the gameplan if Bridgewater's mobility is affected, said "my understanding is he'll be ready to go.''

It was quite his "we're going to kick their ass'' guarantee against the Cardinals in 2018, but Broncos LB Von Miller offered a guarantee of sorts for Thursday's game: "I will play well in this game, I'm going to go off ... I'll put the pressure on me, I'm going to have a great game, I'm going to play well, get a couple of sacks and if I do that then we will win ... Pressure is on me to play well, I will play well ... I don't know who the tackle is I'm going against, but I'm going to kill him.''

Broncos' LB Johnson tears pec, out for season

The Denver Broncos have lost their second-leading tackler for the season, with LB Alexander Johnson suffering a torn right pectoral muscle Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Monday wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, who has not played since suffering an ankle injury in the opener, will do some extra full speed work after the team's walk-throughs this week to gauge his recovery. Fangio had said after Sunday's loss it was "possible'' Jeudy could be ready to play Thursday against the Browns, but said Monday "we'll try and get a barometer on that, and we'll see, but I think the chances of him playing (Thursday) are less than 50 percent right now.''

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos coach Vic Fangio, asked Monday about keeping the here-we-go-again feeling that can come with a losing streak from impacting the team, Fangio said: "Well, I have a sign in my office that says 'it's not time to worry, it's time to work.' And that's my motto.''
