The Denver Broncos’ offense has been one of the most frustrating things in football this season.
Even for folks who aren’t fans of the team, it is difficult to watch the struggles. Everything just looks out of sync, and it could get even tougher for them going forward.
One of their best offensive weapons, wide receiver Courtland Sutton, is dealing with a hamstring injury. He probably won’t be available for the Broncos this week versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Hackett on Sutton dealing with a hamstring injury:
"It’s not looking good this week for him”
Another blow for the Broncos' passing game
That means more opportunities for players like Jerry Jeudy, Greg Dulcich, and Kendall Hinton.
Jeudy has struggled with injuries again this season, but his physical ability is undeniable. He must step up for the Broncos.
Dulcich has been a fun, breakout piece for the offense, but the targets have not been consistent enough for him. The Broncos need to keep him more involved.
Hinton has been explosive, but Russell Wilson hasn’t gotten a ton of reps with him. It is tough to project much production for him and the other depth receivers.
We will see who can step up for the Broncos this weekend and beyond. They’ll have to overcome many obstacles, including the lack of Sutton in the offense.
