NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have a lot of injured players heading into their critical Week 8 Monday Night Football matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Defensive end Derek Wolfe, linebacker Todd Davis, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, and tight end Virgil Green are all questionable to play in this game.

All four might play, but more likely a few will play and a few will sit as each are at various stages of healing.

“We’ll see,” head coach Vance Joseph said of Sanders on Saturday. “He’s gotten better, fast. He’s day-to-day, so we’ll see how he feels on gameday. We’ll see.”

Offensive tackle Donald Stephenson is the only player officially listed as out for the Broncos, while the Kansas City Chiefs only have two players listed as questionably with linebacker Justin Houston limited by a knee injury.
