ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — As it turned out two Broncos offensive starters suffered significant physical setbacks during the team’s 27-13 victory Sunday against the New York Giants.

Jerry Jeudy, Broncos Country knows about. He underwent an MRI Monday morning and head coach Vic Fangio confirmed the initial diagnosis.

“He definitely has a high ankle sprain,’’ Fangio said. “He’s definitely going to miss some time. They’re looking at all options but at this very moment it will just be recovery.”

Glasgow was taken from MetLife Stadium by ambulance to a local hospital after the game. His tests came back fine and he was released Monday morning, although doctors didn't want him flying for at least 24 hours.

He went back to the team hotel Monday in New Jersey where he will rest until he flies back by team-arranged private plane on Tuesday. Glasgow had spoken Monday to team president and CEO Joe Ellis, general manager George Paton and coach Fangio. 

Tim Patrick essentially stepped up to replace Jeudy and finished with four catches for 39 yards that included a 2-yard touchdown reception. Netane Muti filled in for Glasgow, whose playing status going forward is unclear.

Glasgow sent out the following tweet after Fangio's press conference:
