Bengals vs Broncos injury report: Darian Stewart practices and says he'll 'be ready to go'

New, comments

The Denver Broncos (10-4) will likely see both of their starting safeties back on the field for their Monday Night Football matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals (11-3).

The Denver Broncos welcomed T.J. Ward back to the active roster earlier this week, and now Darian Stewart got his first practice in since injuring his hamstring. The safety position has been much maligned in recent weeks as David Bruton Jr. was just sent to season-ending injured reserve earlier this week. Having both starters looking like they will be ready for Monday Night Football is definitely a huge relief.

"It felt good, man," Stewart said. "I think my confidence is there, and I'll be ready to go."

Gary Kubiak also noted that Ward looked good in today's practice, so the Broncos defense could be nearly full strength for the first time since the New England Patriots game when both Ward and Sylvester Williams were knocked out on the same play.

The Cincinnati Bengals confirmed that Tyler Eifert will not play this week, pairing him with Andy Dalton has two big time starters who will be sidelined in this critical matchup that has major AFC playoff implications. The Bengals will need to get the job done with AJ McCarron and their rushing attack.

Here is the final Week 16 injury report.
