Source — Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) likely out Week 5
Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant has a sprained ankle that is expected to sideline him for Denver’s next scheduled game against the New England Patriots on Oct. 11, but he will be considered week to week, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Fant was hurt in the third quarter of Denver’s 37-28 road win over the New York Jets on Thursday and did not return.
He leads the team in catches with 19 and is tied for the lead in receiving touchdowns with two.
“It’s iffy whether they’ll be able to play this week … It also could be a couple weeks for the both of them,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Saturday of Fant and rookie wide receiver KJ Hamler. Hamler has a hamstring injury.
