Meinerz is expected to be sidelined about four weeks. Graham Glasgow, a six-year NFL starter for Detroit and the Broncos, replaced Meinerz late in the first half and finished the game.

Meinerz said he felt a tweak in his hamstring while blocking on Brandon McManus' 30-yard field goal to cap the Broncos' opening series. Meinerz played two more series with his last play coming on Russell Wilson's 67-yard touchdown toss to Jerry Jeudy that tied the game, 10-10. The Broncos eventually lost, 17-16.
