Sutton went down during the individual portion of practice and landed awkwardly on his shoulder. He was down for a bit and was seen favoring his shoulder a bit before heading back to the locker room for further evaluation. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Sutton is indeed receiving an MRI on is shoulder and we should know the severity of his injury here rather soon.
The hope here is that it’s just a minor sprain or simply a contusion and no real structural damage done to his shoulder.

As for the rest of the Broncos injury report, linebacker Von Miller and linebacker Mark Barron were the only two players who didn’t participate at all during practice. Von is out 3+ months with an ankle injury while Barron is dealing with a hamstring injury.
Linebacker Bradley Chubb remained limited as he returns from an ACL injury and will likely be limited to a pitch count come Monday night. Hopefully, his knee will continue to hold up and strengthen as we progress into the NFL season. The Broncos need Chubb to produce.
