Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis Colts Thursday Injury Report: Broncos looking healthy

New, comments

The Broncos had one player limited in practice Wednesday due to injury. One. On Thursday they had three players limited in practice. Still better then previous weeks.

For the second straight day the Denver Broncos had all 53 players on the roster participating in practice. Yesterday was the first day in 3 months that this has happened this season.

It's encouraging to see the Broncos healthy heading into their Divisional round matchup against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday.

The only additions to the injury report were defensive end Quanterus Smith, and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein. Both are dealing with knee injuries and were listed as limited for Thursday's practice.

Brandon Marshall has been moving around "pretty good":

It appears that the Denver Broncos will have their leading tackler Brandon Marshall back on the field for this Sunday's game, but he may not be 100%.

I’m not going to say it’s 100 percent, but it’s getting there. It feels pretty decent. I’ve just got to keep going out there, keep working, and we’ll see what happens."

Marshall says that the goal for him is to play this weekend, and that "hopefully I'll be playing".

According to Denver Broncos Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio, Marshall has been moving around "pretty good" in practice this week.

"You've got to play with what you have, and being able to have Brandon Marshall back is big. He's that linebacker that's calling plays, making big plays, and he's that big playmaker that we need."

Marshall was listed as "limited" again for Thursday's practice. Tomorrow's practice will be key for Marshall, but I expect him to be listed as questionable. If I had to bet I believe we'll see Marshall starting for the Broncos on Sunday.
