A beleaguered Denver Broncos team already missing linebacker Von Miller (ankle) and wide receiver Courtland Sutton (shoulder) was forced to play without cornerback A.J. Bouye and running back Phillip Lindsay for the second half Monday night of a 16-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Jeff Legwold of reports.

Bouye suffered a right shoulder injury in the closing minutes of the first half when he dove to defend a pass intended for Titans wide receiver Corey Davis along the Broncos' sideline. Lindsay did not return to the game after halftime because of a foot injury.

The injury to Bouye, whom the Broncos traded a fourth-round pick to acquire from the Jaguars earlier this year, put rookies Michael Ojemudia and Essang Bassey in the lineup at cornerback for much of the second half as the Titans consistently forced the Broncos into the nickel. Bassey made the roster as an undrafted rookie despite an abbreviated training camp and no preseason games due to COVID-19 protocols.

After Monday's game, Broncos coach Vic Fangio was more specific about Lindsay's ailment, saying it was a toe injury, but overall on Bouye and Lindsay, he said, "I don't know the severity of them just yet."

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Lindsay is dealing with turf toe that the team hopes is "mild."
