Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers injury report: Safety Darian Stewart returns to practice

New, comments

Stewart is back!

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

The Broncos are coming off their much needed bye week and are looking a bit healthier than they were prior to the bye. However, they still have a handful of key veterans sitting out practice and/or dealing with injuries.

Linebacker Brandon Marshall continued to sit out practice with a knee injury. He missed the game against Houston and now is in danger of missing this divisional matchup against the Chargers. If so, look for rookie Josey Jewell get the start once again in his place.

Also sitting out practice was reserve safety Dymonte Thomas with an ankle injury.

Rookie wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton(knee), cornerback Bradley Roby(ankle), running back Royce Freeman(ankle), and linebacker Joseph Jones(foot) were all limited in today’s practice.

In some good news, veteran safety Darian Stewart returned to practice after sitting out nearly a month due to a neck injury. Look for him to rejoin the Broncos defense as the starting safety.

As for the Chargers, veteran tight end Antonio Gates and cornerback Trevor Williams sat out practice today. In some potential big news for the Chargers, pass rusher Joey Bosa was limited in practice and nearing closer to returning to the field.
