What every NFL team hopes for in training camp is making it through without any injuries.
Unfortunately, that never seems to be the case.
The NFL has a 100% injury rate, yet no one expects to get injured in practice.
Yet, that is what happened to Denver Broncos star wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.
According to Benjamin Allbright, Jeudy was carted off at practice with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.
Jeudy down at practice. Carted off. Looked like hammy.

This was the last thing the Broncos needed to see as we inch closer to the season.
Jeudy is expected to be the WR1 in Denver this year.
He and Russell Wilson have built chemistry over the past year and many expect Jeudy to have a career year.
Also, the addition of Sean Payton as head coach should help the Broncos offense.
He is an offensive guru who can help Denver get back to having a respectable offense.
Losing Jeudy for an extended period would be costly for the Broncos.
He is a great route runner and can consistently get open.
The only reason why he has yet to have a breakout season is due to the quarterbacks he has played with.
If this injury is indeed to his hamstring there is no knowing how long he could be out.
Those types of injuries can linger if not taken care of.
But, it is the next man up in the Broncos’ offense for the time being.
That means Courtland Sutton and Marvin Mims will have to take on larger roles.
Hopefully, Jeudy will be able to return for the start of the regular season.
But, seeing an injury like this is a tough blow for the 24-year-old.NEXT: Insider Makes Harsh Prediction On Russell Wilson’s Role This Season
