Heading into Week 11, the Denver Broncos are likely going to see both Jeff Heuerman and Ja’Wuan James out for another week as they continue to deal with nagging injuries. Head Coach Vic Fangio also confirmed that cornerback Bryce Callahan will finally be moved to injured reserve for the remainder of the season.
“Part of his operation, which is routine, they put a screw in there to promote healing and the screw got bent,” Fangio said. “It caused him a lot of discomfort and pain. Some guys have been able play through with that based upon the level of discomfort and pain. His level was too high for him to play through that. Basically, the screw got bent. I don’t know what having a screw bent in your foot feels like it.”
It’s unfortunately, but ultimately not surprising for most fans. The other news coming out this week was DaeSean Hamilton tweaking his knee in practice. He is questionable heading into this game, but Tim Patrick will be activated off injured reserve here soon. He’ll be available at some point.
On the other side, the Minnesota Vikings have injuries all over the place after a physical, hard-fought win over the Dallas Cowboys last week. They will be without WR Adam Thielen, DT Linval Joseph, G Josh Kline, and S Anthony Harris. Another safety, Andrew Sendejo is also questionable heading into this game.
If the Broncos can put up a good game in all three phases, they might just be catching the Vikings at the perfect time.
