Broncos vs. Chargers injury report: Louis Vasquez returns to practice

New, comments

Here is your Thursday injury report for the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos received some good news on the injury front on Thursday. Starting right guard, Louis Vasquez returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday's practice with a groin injury. Having him return to practice on Thursday means that there is a very good chance that the veteran guard will be out there for the Broncos on Sunday.

In even better news, linebacker DeMarcus Ware participated in his second consecutive practice for the Broncos.

Ware hasn't played for the Broncos since they visited the Indianapolis Colts back in early November where he suffered a back injury.

Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak after today's practice that Ware looked "muched improved" this week, but Ware himself said he's not sure if he's playing or not. He said he needs to be smart with this injury. Linebackers Shaquil Barrett and Shane Ray have done well in replacement of Ware, so there is need need to rush him back.

Also returning to practice today is receiver Cody Latimer and linebacker Corey Nelson. Both players became fathers yesterday and missed practice because of that.

Rookie cornerback Lorenzo Doss was added to the injury report after he was sent home with an illness.
