The Denver Broncos (2-3) will be down two key starters against the Los Angeles Rams (5-0) with both right tackle Jared Veldheer (knee) and cornerback Adam Jones (thigh) out for this critical Week 6 matchup against a strong NFC powerhouse.
“For the game, we’ve got two out,” Joseph said on Friday. “We’ve got Jared Veldheer with a knee and Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones with a thigh. Shaq Barrett had a sick day today. He’s OK, he’ll be fine for Sunday.”
The Rams will be without placekicker Greg Zuerlein again this week, but Cairo Santos did nail a game-winner last week. They should be fine in that department, despite there being snow in the forecast on Sunday.
Here is the full injury report for both teams:
