Broncos vs. Buccaneers injury report: Green and Stephenson remain sidelined

Here is your Thursday Injury Report for the Denver Broncos and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The big news from today's practice was that both tight end Virgil Green(Calf), and right tackle Donald Stephenson(Calf) did not participate in practice for the second straight day.

Both still got some work in on the side, but their status for Sunday's game looks bleak. That may change if one or both put in a limited or full practice on Friday, but it looks like the Broncos will be without both for the second straight week.

The only other update was veteran safety Shiloh Keo putting a limited practice today after sitting out Wednesday's practice with a knee injury.

The only other two Broncos players listed as limited are safeties Justin Simmons and T.J. Ward. Simmons has a broken hand, but he does have a club and could play with that if the Broncos wanted him too. As for Ward, he suffered a minor neck injury against the Bengals but returned to the game.

As for the Bucs, center Joe Hawley put in a limited practice after sitting out Wednesday. The rest of their injury report remains the same as it was yesterday.
