The Broncos will be without their star tight end for today's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Here are the inactives for the Denver Broncos and the St. Louis Rams for this afternoons game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver Colorado.

Denver Broncos:

Position Name
Running Back Ronnie Hillman
Tight End Julius Thomas
Tackle Michael Schofield
Cornerback Tony Carter
Defensive Tackle Marvin Austin
Offensive Tackle Chris Clark
Running Back Montee Ball

Thoughts: The Broncos will be without their star tight end Julius Thomas for this afternoons game. Thomas suffered an ankle injury early in last weekends game against the Rams. However the Broncos are getting back blocking tight end Virgil Green back. Green has been dealing with a calf/knee injury. His presence should help the Broncos running game. Look for Jacob Tamme and Green to replace Thomas's production on the field.

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is playing after suffering a concussion last week. He was listed as probable so it's not a big surprise that he's playing.

A few surprises on the inactives list are defensive tackle Marvin Austin and offensive tackle Chris Clark. Look for Mitch Unrein to be the backup defensive tackle, and Paul Cornick to be the backup offensive tackle.

Miami Dolphins

Position Name
Cornerback Cortland Finnegan
Cornerback Jalil Brown
Tight End Charles Clay
Linebacker Jonathan Freeny
Tackle Nate Garner
Defensive Tackle Anthony Johnson
Guard Billy Turner
