NO SUSPENSION FOR BRONCOS’ JERRY JEUDY FOR YELLING, MAKING CONTACT WITH REFEREE: REPORT

“I was just frustrated because we didn’t have things going. So, I was out there playing with frustration wanting to make a play for my team. I feel like, at that point, I was just held and that should’ve been called, but I have to know how to control my anger and just move on from there.”

Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said he addressed the situation with Jeudy when the incident occurred. 

“He definitely knew that he was wrong,” Hackett said. “That’s unacceptable. You can’t do that. We addressed that, and I know that he knows that he can’t do that. I know that he was very frustrated at the time, but that’s just something you can’t do.”
