Broncos offensive coordinator to miss Sunday’s game against Eagles due to COVID-19
Due to COVID protocols, the Denver Broncos will be without offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Shurmur is the Broncos’ play-caller and will be a massive loss on the sidelines for Denver. Expected to replace him is either RB coach Curtis Modkins or QB coach Mike Shula.
Shula is the son of all-time NFL great Don Shula and the former head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide from 2003 to 2006. Shurmur’s incident is far from the first COVID issue for the Broncos in recent memory. Earlier today, guard Austin Schlottman was sent into protocols while Noah Fant was just activated.
For the Eagles, there are no ongoing COVID issues, and hopefully, that will remain the case after Sunday. Everyone looks ready to go this week outside Josh Sweat and Andre Dillard, who are both questionable as of this afternoon.
