New, comment

Here is your Wednesday injury report for the Broncos and Rams.

NFL: Denver Broncos at New York Jets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams released their first injury report of the week ahead of their match up on Sunday. For the Broncos, they had two starters and a veteran corner sit out Wednesday’s practice with injuries.

Safety Darian Stewart(foot), cornerback Adam Jones(thigh), and right tackle Jared Veldheer(knee) all sat out practice today for the Broncos.

The notable and new name on this list is Darien Stewart. The Broncos starting safety suffered a foot injury during Sunday’s game against the Jets. Now his status for this Sunday’s game against the Rams is now in doubt. His status will be something to watch during the week.

As for Adam Jones, the veteran has been a fixture on the injury report each week. He’s dealing with a thigh injury and his status will always be something to watch.

Right tackle Jared Veldheer sat out the game against the Jets with a knee injury and now sat out Wednesday’s practice. This isn’t a great sign for his availability for Sunday but there are still a few days left to see if he improves.

As for the Rams, the key names to watch are wide receivers Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks. They’re in the concussion protocol and will need to be cleared first before taking the field Sunday. This will be something to keep an eye on since both players are key fixtures to the Rams high flying offensive attack.
