The Denver Broncos and Washington released their first injury report of the week today and all eyes were on Paxton Lynch’s health. Well, the Broncos quarterback put in a limited practice today, but who will start Sunday still remains a question mark.
Based on interviews we heard w/Vance Joseph, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler today, I'd be surprised if it's not Osweiler starting at WAS. Joseph and Lynch didn't sound confident Lynch is ready for full workload after missing 3 weeks of practice with ankle. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) December 20, 2017
Whether or not Lynch would start would depend on his health per multiple reports throughout the week/weekend and so far, it’s not looking great for the former first-round pick.
If he can put in a full practice on Thursday or Friday, maybe he can start Sunday, but the odds have shifted towards Brock Osweiler being your starter. 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis is also saying that he would be surprised “if it’s not Osweiler starting” against Washington and he is plugged in as they get with the Broncos.
As for the rest of the injury report, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders sat out practice with a nagging ankle injury and fellow receiver Cody Latimer was limited with a thigh injury. Otherwise, the Broncos are looking healthy heading into Sunday’s game. The large list of players on the injury report is also a reason for this.
As for Washington, they have been ravaged by injuries all season, especially along the offensive line. They have 15 players listed on the injury report, 9 of which are were either DNP or limited.
