Chargers at Broncos injury updates: Matt LaCosse back to full participation

New, comments

The Denver Broncos will have all of their non-IR’d players healthy and ready to compete against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are wrapping up their 2018 season with a very long list of injured reserve players that grew by two more on Friday, but of those remaining they’ll have everyone back at full strength for a potentially strong finish against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The AFC West, and by proxy AFC homefield advantage, is still in play as the Kansas City Chiefs will need to take care of the lowly Oakland Raiders at home. However, if they choke it away (It is almost January, you know...) the Chargers have an opportunity to not only unseat the Chiefs in the West but seriously challenge for homefield advantage and a first round bye for themselves.

In short, the game has the potential to be hugely important for the Chargers and they’ll be bringing a playoff atmosphere to Denver. Will the Broncos be ready to meet that kind of intensity knowing this is their final game of the year regardless?
