Broncos vs. Chiefs injury report: David Bruton misses practice Wednesday

Denver Broncos safety David Bruton is day-to-day after dislocating his shoulder and did not practice Wednesday.

The Denver Broncos entered Week 2 practices with their usually-53-man roster short one man. But that was by design. Nathan Palmer was waived, presumably making room for Wes Welkershould he be reinstated Wednesday. But the waiting game continues.

"At this point, that’s all speculation," head coach John Fox said. "We're excited to get Wes back when that is."

Safety David Bruton and guard Ben Garland were both at practice but didn't dress in pads. Earlier Fox declared Bruton had dislocated his shoulder and was day-to-day, an injury he suffered during Denver's Week 1 win.

"He's made improvement but not ready to hit the field yet," Fox said of Bruton.

The motto of Wednesday's practice was not to overlook the Chiefs. Peyton Manning noted that they were a playoff team a year ago and that division opponents are always though.

"The Chiefs are a playoff team coming back," Manning said. "Just like last year, you throw out what happened last week; you throw it out the window. It's a division game, two teams very familiar with each other, well coached, talented football teams. It's a physical football game and that's how we have to play Sunday because we know that's how they're going to play."
