Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints inactives: Wolfe and Talib are out for the Broncos

New, comments

Here are your inactives for the Denver Broncos and the New Orleans Saints.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Here are the inactives for Denver Broncos and the New Orleans Saints for this mornings must win game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans Louisiana.

Denver Broncos:

Position Name
Cornerback Taurean Nixon
Cornerback Aqib Talib
Running back/fullback Juwan Thompson
Quarterback Austin Davis
Guard Connor McGovern
Guard Billy Turner
Defensive end Derek Wolfe

Thoughts:

The Broncos will be without two their best defensive players today. Both cornerback Aqib Talib and defensive end Derek Wolfe are inactive for the Broncos today. Look for Kayvon Webster and Lorenzo Doss to replace Talib in the secondary and rookie Adam Gotsis and veteran Billy Winn to replace Wolfe on the defensive line.

Not having those two against the high-powered New Orleans Saints offense could make for a long morning for the Broncos defense.

Running back/fullback Juwan Thompson is also inactive for the Broncos in a somewhat surprising news. This leaves rookie Devontae Booker and Kapri Bibbs as the Broncos only running back options. Also, rookie fullback Andy Janovich must feel 100% because Thompson has been his backup.

The rest of the Broncos inactives include third-string quarterback Austin Davis, guards Billy Turner and Connor McGovern, and cornerback Taurean Nixon.

New Orleans Saints:

Position Name
Linebacker Stephone Anthony
Linebacker Michael Mauti
Tackle Terron Armstead
Guard Landon Turner
Running back Daniel Lasco
Running back Marcus Murphy
Wide receiver Tommylee Lewis
