The Broncos continue to have no major injuries to really worry about this week. Their veterans Jamaal Charles, Domata Peko, and Aqib Talib all returned to practice today after receiving the day off on Wednesday.
Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (right shoulder) doesn’t have a timeline for a return. Just started throwing short passes yesterday. About 5 yards— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) October 12, 2017
The only injuries of note remain to be Cody Latimer and Paxton Lynch. Latimer is continuing to deal with a knee injury while Lynch is just beginning to start throwing this week. Head Coach Vance Joseph said there’s no timetable there and with Brock Osweiler in the fold, there’s no real rush to bring Lynch back at this point.
Both Lynch and Latimer figure to be inactive this week. Outside of that, it’s a pretty drama free week for the Broncos on the injury front.
The same cannot be said for the Giants. They remain a team in turmoil that is ravaged by injuries and just suspended a veteran defensive player. Key defensive starters Landon Collins and Oliver Vernon missed their second start practice and their status remains up in the air for Sunday Night.
Also missing a second straight practice is wide receiver, Sterling Shepard. He figures to be at the very least limited by this ankle injury if he even plays on Sunday Night. If he cannot go, that leaves Roger Lewis Jr., former Bronco Tavarres King, and Travis Rudolph as their receivers. They also signed former Bronco receiver/returner Kalif Raymond to their Practice Squad today.
The Broncos No Fly Zone will have a rather easy test on Sunday Night.
