Broncos Patriots injury report: Ronnie Hillman is probable

The Broncos injury report is a little longer than usual, but the team still looks pretty healthy heading into Sunday's epic (I think I'm required to use that word this week) matchup between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots.

Happy Halloween Broncos fans!

Broncos off the injury report this week

The only Broncos player who made it off the injury report this week is TJ Ward. This is not surprising as his knee injury never even limited him in practice.

Broncos new to the injury report this week

Lamin Barrow who left the Chargers game with a concussion is working his way through the NFL concussion protocol. Louis Vasquez missed practice on Wednesday due to an illness. Orlando Franklin and Derek Wolfe also dealt with an illness earlier in the week. Hopefully everyone remembers to drink a lot of liquids and is back to 100 percent by Sunday.

The Broncos also experienced a few injuries on the practice field this week but none of them appear to be very serious. Ronnie Hillman "landed funny" on his shoulder and was limited in practice this week. Virgil Green made an appearance on the Thursday injury report with an issue with his calf. Both Hillman and Green are expected to play on Sunday.

Repeat Broncos on the injury report

Montee Ball (groin), Omar Bolden (concussion), Steven Johnson (ankle), Chris Harris Jr. (knee), Brandon McManus (groin), and Juwan Thompson (knee) are all repeats on the injury report this week. All of these players appear to be heading in the right direction.

Quinton Carter was on the injury report last time for a knee injury, this week he's dealing with a hamstring injury which appears to be more serious. Ball and Carter were seen working with team trainers this week at practice.
