New, comments

The Denver Broncos are getting healthy, while the Kansas City Chiefs are ailing a bit.

The Denver Broncos will need all hands on deck to give them the best shot at beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. Aqib Talib and Derek Wolfe have both been practice participants this week, along with T.J. Ward. Matt Paradis was limited again with a hip injury, but that hasn’t kept him from playing.

The surprising injury was long snapper Casey Krieter injuring his calf.

“His calf has been bothering him a little bit,” head coach Gary Kubiak explained. “He just didn’t end up taking his full portion of practice, but he took the majority of it. We’ll see.”

For the Chiefs, Dee Ford has not participated all week with a hamstring and Jeremy Maclin has been held out with a groin injury. They look to be getting Marcus Peters back, while Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, and Dontari Poe are all back at practice as well.
