Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak met with the media today and updated everyone on the injury news after yesterday's victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Thankfully for everyone he gave us all good news.
Coach Kubiak: DE Malik Jackson not diagnosed with a concussion.— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) September 14, 2015
This is the injury that concerned me the most. If he was diagnosed with a concussion, Jackson would have more than likely missed Thursday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
His absence with also leave the Broncos severely thin at the defensive line position. Derek Wolfe will miss another three games due to suspension, and Kenny Anunike is still recovering from knee surgery.
Thankfully it appears that Jackson will be on the field for the Broncos on Thursday night.
Demaryius Thomas fine w hand issue, acc to Kubiak.. CJ OK. as well.. #Broncos— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) September 14, 2015
Neither of these two injuries worried me too much. Both were able to play through these two injuries, so any news coming out about them missing any sort of time would have been surprising.
Both injuries will be something to keep an eye on during the game. A hand injury for a receiver and a toe injury for a running back could flare up during the game.
The Broncos face another tough defense this Thursday when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs, so hopefully these guys can remain healthy during that game.
The Broncos also received good news on safeties David Bruton and Omar Bolden. Coach Gary Kubiak said both are "doing well" and should be able to go on Thursday.
It's great to hear that the Broncos escaped Sunday's game without suffering any major injuries.
