The Denver Broncos and the Philadelphia Eagles released their final injury report ahead of their Sunday afternoon matchup. Both teams have some key starters listed as questionable and their status will be something to monitor Sunday morning.
Final injury report before #DENvsPHI:— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) November 3, 2017
• WR Emmanuel Sanders, LB Todd Davis, G Ron Leary — QUESTIONABLE
• OT Donald Stephenson — OUT
Broncos starters Emmanuel Sanders, Ron Leary, and Todd Davis are listed as questionable for Sunday afternoon’s game with the Eagles.
Both Davis and Sanders are dealing with high ankle sprains and could return this Sunday, but they will likely both be game-time decisions. The fact Sanders put in a full practice today makes his odds of playing Sunday pretty good. Davis was limited all week but is reportedly optimistic about being out there. If so, he’ll upgrade an already dominate Broncos rush defense.
Guard Ron Leary is someone the Broncos really need out there on Sunday. He is one of the better pass blocking guards in the NFL this season and will need to protect Brock Osweiler from Fletcher Cox who is damn good. The fact he was limited all week means there’s a chance he’ll be out there. Let's hope he will be.
Tackle Menelik Watson was added to the injury report on Thursday but will be out there on Sunday for the Broncos. The Eagles have one of the better edge rushing units in the NFL, so the Broncos will need him to play well on Sunday.
The only player officially ruled out for Sunday’s game is reserve tackle Donald Stephenson who is dealing with a calf injury still.
As for the Eagles, corner Ronald Darby is listed as questionable and likely will be a game-time decision for them. Star tight end Zach Ertz was a late add to the injury report, but Head Coach Doug Pederson told media today that he will play Sunday. The Broncos have had issues against tight ends, so this will be a matchup to watch.
