Denver Broncos at Cincinnati Bengals: Wednesday participation report

The Denver Broncos have a few guys down this week, but so do the Cincinnati Bengals. Here is your Wednesday injury report.

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos took a bit of a beating in the injury front in their beating of the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals also had their own beating from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Winning at least brings Denver some comfort this week.

DeMarcus Ware will be out at least a month, but Virgil Green and Donald Stephenson are also unknowns this week. Justin Simmons has a fracture in his wrist, but he plans to club it up for this game and go full speed.

The Bengals are mostly healthy, but guys are just a little banged up and nursing some aches and pains.
