NFL: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Bronco and Arizona Cardinals released their final injury report of the week ahead of their Thursday night matchup. For the Broncos, they have already ruled out five players for tomorrow nights game.

The five Broncos who have been ruled out are cornerback Adam Jones(thigh), linebacker Shane Ray(ankle/wrist), safety Dymonte Thomas(chest), tackle Jared Veldheer(knee), and guard Ron Leary(Achilles).

Look for Tramaine Brock and Isaac Yiadom to step up in place of Jones against Josh Rosen and the Cardinals passing attack. With Ray out, look for Shaq Barrett to get more reps as he gives Von and Chubb a rest at times during the game. Billy Turner will get another start with Veldheer missing his third straight game and Max Garcia moves into a full-time role with Ron Leary heading to the IR. The Broncos enter this short week game a bit banged up and at a potential crossroads.

As for the Cardinals, they have ruled out safety Tre Boston, guard Mike Iupati, and guard Jeremy Vujnovich for Thursday Night’s game. They also listed cornerback Jamar Taylor and guard Justin Pugh as questionable. They enter the game a bit banged up as well.

Here is your entire final injury report for the Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals ahead of their Thursday Night showdown.
