Jerry Jeudy went down in a heap of pain on the Denver Broncos first offensive play of their Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Backed up to their own end zone Russell Wilson came out slinging a deep ball but nobody was there. That’s because Jeudy was on the field holding his leg about 20 yards short of where the ball landed.

The highest-drafted wide out in team history, Jeudy—the 15th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft from Alabama—finally started catching his stride in recent weeks. On the season he has 30 catches for 449 yards and three touchdowns.

Jeudy has been ruled out after initially being questionable to return with an ankle injury. He eventually left the field on a golf cart after testing his ankle on the sideline.

Last season Jeudy was held to 10 games after he injured his ankle in the opener. He only had 38 catches for 467 yards on the season after coming back from a high ankle sprain.

NFL Network is reporting that he does not have an Achilles injury.
