Here are the inactives for tonight's Thursday Night week one season opening game between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Denver Broncos:

Position Name
Wide receiver Bennie Fowler
Offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo
Tight end Jeff Heuerman
Quarterback Austin Davis
Guard Connor McGovern
Nose tackle Kyle Peko
Cornerback Lorenzo Doss


The Broncos will be without a handful of young players who they expected to contribute this year tonight. Wide receiver Bennie Fowler(back), offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo(elbow) and tight end Jeff Heuerman(ankle) are inactive for tonight's game.

Look for Cody Latimer, Jordan Norwood, and Jordan Taylor to step in for Fowler in the passing game, especially with the Broncos only having two tight ends active. Tight end Jeff Heuerman is inactive so look for veteran Jon Phillips to get some action tonight.

Veteran Austin Davis is inactive so rookie first round pick Paxton Lynch will serve as Trevor Siemian's backup for tonight's game.

The rest of the Broncos include a pair of rookies, guard Connor McGovern and nose tackle Kyle Peko. Finally, Training Camp hero Lorenzo Doss is also inactive for tonight's game.

Carolina Panther

Position Name
Wide receiver Brenton Bersin
Wide receiver Damiere Byrd
Safety Dean Marlowe
Running back Cameron Artis-Payne
Linebacker Jared Norris
Guard Tyler Larsen
Defensive End Lavar Edwards
