Here is your Wednesday Injury report.

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

Sounds the alarms Broncos fans, All-Pro pass rusher Von Miller is on the teams injury report. Von put in a limited practice today and is apparently dealing with a thigh injury.

Von didn’t seem hampered by this injury during the Monday Night game and is likely just receiving a maintenance day by the Broncos. However, anytime Von is on the injury report, you have to keep an eye on his status throughout the week.

The other key injury to keep an eye on here is the one to right tackle, Jared Veldheer. He suffered a bone bruise during the game Monday Night and was unable to practice today. After practice, Head Coach Vance Joseph said that Veldheer is progressing slowly and praised his backup, lineman, Billy Turner.

“We’ll see as the week progresses. Right now, he’s getting better slowly. We’ll see, but I thought Billy played really well in his place on Monday night. Obviously, [G/T] Eli Wilkinson is a good, young player. I’m confident if [Veldheer] is not playing that Billy will do a good job for us.”

Punter Marquette King, inside linebacker Todd Davis, and defensive end Adam Gotsis were also DNP’s for today’s practice. King is dealing with a thigh injury, Davis is dealing with a shoulder injury, and Gotsis is dealing with a “very minor” knee injury. Corner Adam Jones was also a DNP but he was absent and dealing with a family issue.

Tight end Jeff Heuerman and guard/tackle Billy Turner also put in limited practices today as both players are dealing with sore knees. Neither injury seems serious and they should be fine going forward.

As for the Jets, reserve wide receiver Charone Peake and tight end Neal Sterling were the only two players to sit out practice for them.
