Broncos-Browns injury report: Demaryius Thomas, Aqib Talib among players missing practice Thursday

New, comments

Peyton Manning, Louis Vasquez, and Owen Daniels returned from a Wednesday day-off, but several other Broncos did not.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are banged up, with five players missing practice Thursday with various injuries, including four starters.

The good news, however, is that some of this lack of participation may be precautionary. Demaryius Thomas, for example, toughed it out last week to play through a neck injury. Aqib Talib was carted off the field last Sunday but still returned to the field in the fourth quarter.

There are reasons to believe some of these injured players will be able to go on Sunday, but others, like DeMarcus Ware and perhaps Juwan Thompson, are less likely to suit up Sunday. Stay tuned for the Broncos' full injury report Friday afternoon.
