The Denver Broncos will rely on a running-back-by-committee approach against the New York Jets in Week 6, Denver Broncos coach John Fox said Wednesday.

"We'll lean on all three of them," Fox said, referring to the remaining healthy backs Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson, and Juwan Thompson.

Not all three of them are 100% healthy. though.

Thompson, who rushed for a fourth quarter touchdown against the Cardinals Sunday, missed practice Wednesday with a knee injury he suffered earlier in the game. He was seen jogging during the portion of practice open to the media, according to reports; based on that information and Fox's comments, he appears likely to contribute Sunday.

Rookie offensive tackle Michael Schofield was excused from practice due to a death in the family, Fox said.

On the other side of the field, former Broncos receiver Eric Decker, now a member of the New York Jets, was limited in practice with a hamstring injury he described as "day to day." Decker sat out the Jets' shutout loss to the San Diego Chargers in Week 5.
