Broncos vs. Cardinals Injury Report: Broncos looking healthy

The Denver Broncos are looking healthy as they're preparing to take on the undefeated Arizona Cardinals

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are looking pretty healthy this week as they prepare to take on the undefeated Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. All 53 players on the roster participated in practice on Wednesday. This was the first time all year(training camp included) that the Broncos have had every player on the roster practicing together.

This included starting weak-side linebacker Danny Trevathan who appears ready to make his season debut this Sunday. As you know Trevathan was injured during Training Camp, and has missed that past three games. Trevathan used the early bye week to work himself back into football shape and looks ready to go.

Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio said on Thursday that he will be ready spell Danny Trevathan during Sunday's game if he looks fatigued. Backup linebacker Brandon Marshall played well in his absence so I wouldn't be surprised to see them ease Trevathan in.

“I’m not sure exactly, but at some point we will spell him throughout the game and not count on him going out there and playing 80 plays or whatever right away.”

Safety David Bruton who missed yesterday's practice was able to participate today. Guard Louis Vasquez was listed as limited again while he's dealing with a rib cage issue.

It's becoming more unlikely that we will see Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback Carson Palmer this Sunday. According to Pro Football Talk, Palmer is dealing with a axillary nerve contusion. The condition causes numbness in the shoulder which results into shoulder weakness.

Yesterdays Cardinals Head Coach Bruce Arians didn't rule out Palmer, but did say Palmer has regressed since last week.
