#Broncos Thursday injury report:— Aric DiLalla (@AricDiLalla) October 3, 2019
DNP: Bryce Callahan (foot), Josey Jewell (hamstring)
Limited: Kareem Jackson (hamstring), Ja'Wuan James (knee), Derek Wolfe (ankle)
Full: Ron Leary (not injury related), Emmanuel Sanders (quad), Duke Dawson (ankle), Joe Jones (triceps)
Tackle Ja’Wuan James continued his return to the field today during today’s practice, however, he doesn’t sound very likely to suit up this Sunday against the Chargers. Head Coach Vic Fangio called the Broncos prized free agent addition “highly questionable”.
“He started off OK. I think he did about what we had hoped he would do, but he’s highly questionable whether he’ll be ready this week.”
As for veteran defensive back Kareem Jackson, he sounds closer than James, but he will likely need to put in a full practice on Friday to play on Sunday. Fangio told reporters after practice that he is waiting to see how Jackson responds tomorrow and that he would like to see him do more during Friday’s practice.
“Kareem looked OK. We’re going to see him do some more today and see how he responds to that. I think we got what we were hoping for yesterday, but we’re going to need to get a little more today than hopefully on Friday also.”
As for some good news, veterans Ron Leary and Emmanuel Sanders returned to practice with the full participation label. Neither player is really during with anything serious, so nothing to worry about there.
