Broncos vs. 49ers Wednesday Injury Report

Good evening Broncos Country!

Justin Edmonds

The Broncos will be facing off against San Francisco this Sunday night. Though the Niners are coming into the game a bit banged up, they still have young explosive talent and something that has given the Broncos defense issues this year--a mobile quarterback. Colin Kaepernick is hot off a sterling performance against the Rams in primetime. What does Chris Harris Jr. have to say about this matchup?

"He's dangerous when he's running. He's not like other quarterbacks that have been running and try to slide. He kind of runs to try to make a big play out of it, so that's something that we have to be aware of. The D-Line has to do a good job of working together and being able to keep him in the pocket and we're going to have to cover a lot longer."

I'll be breaking down the struggles our defense has had with mobile quarterbacks and offer up a gameplan on how the Broncos can approach Kap and the Niners.

As far as practice? There are some new additions to the Broncos injury report including Chris Harris Jr. who was listed with a knee injury. The best cornerback in the NFL right now participated fully however so this is probably not that big of an issue at the moment. Juwan Thompson did not participate. If he is unable to go, it would open the door up for CJ Anderson to get some reps behind starter Ronnie Hillman.

On the Niners' side of the ball, a lot of folks were limited, but the names to follow throughout the week are G Mike Iupati and S/nickel corner Jimmy Ward who both missed practice on Wednesday.

Mile High Report will keep you updated throughout the week!
