Here are the inactives for the Denver Broncos and their division rival San Diego Chargers for this afternoon's matchup at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver Colorado.

Denver Broncos:

Position Name
Inside linebacker Brandon Marshall
Cornerback Aqib Talib
Wide receiver Cody Latimer
Quarterback Austin Davis
Guard Connor McGovern
Guard Billy Turner
Tight end A.J. Derby

Thoughts:

The Broncos will be without star cornerback Aqib Talib(lower back) and starting Inside Linebacker Brandon Marshall for this afternoon's game against the San Diego Chargers. Look for Bradley Roby and Kayvon Webster to get playing time in place of Talib. I'd also expect Corey Nelson and Zaire Anderson to get playing time in place of Marshall. These are two tough losses for the Broncos defense.

Also inactive is wide receiver Cody Latimer who suffered a concussion a few weeks back. He has missed the last few games with this injury so that is concerning. Look for Bennie Fowler, Jordan Taylor, and Jordan Norwood to get reps in his place.

The Broncos do have some good news on the injury front today. Veteran edge rusher and team captain DeMarcus Ware will return to the lineup for the first time since week two.

I'd expect Shane Ray to still get the "start" and probably play more snaps, but we will see Ware in on most passing downs I believe. It's a big boost to an already good Denver Broncos pass rushing unit.

Also active for the Broncos is center Matt Paradis. He missed practice all week with a hip injury but will be out there for the Broncos this afternoon.

The rest of the Broncos inactives include Billy Turner, rookie Connor McGovern, Austin Davis, and recently acquired tight end A.J. Derby.

San Diego Chargers:

Position Name
Safety Jahleel Addae
Outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu
Guard Kenny Wiggins
Cornerback Criag Mager
Center Max Tuerk
Offensive tackle Tyreek Burwell
Tight end Asante Cleveland
