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.
|Wide receiver||Bennie Fowler|
|Offensive lineman||Ty Sambrailo|
|Tight end||Jeff Heuerman|
|Nose tackle||Kyle Peko|
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.
|Wide receiver||Brenton Bersin|
|Wide receiver||Damiere Byrd|
|Running back||Cameron Artis-Payne|
|Defensive End||Lavar Edwards|
