Final Broncos-Chargers injury status: Questionable is the word

New, comments

The Denver Broncos could have multiple defensive starters down for their game against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13. Not a good sign.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Minnesota Vikings David Berding-USA TODAY Sports

Some good news on the injury front was badly needed for the Denver Broncos and they got it on Friday when both Von Miller and Alexander Johnson saw limited practice time after not participating all week long. They are questionable to play against the Los Angeles Chargers, along with four others; Duke Dawson (concussion), Shelby Harris (ankle), Josey Jewell (ankle), and Ja’Wuan James (knee).

Vic Fangio said it is 50-50 on whether or not Miller will play, which hopefully means he won’t play. No need to risk it if he is that hobbled by that left knee injury. As for James, he was a full participant all week, but Fangio also said he will either start and play or not even dress of the game. They’ll decide that on Sunday.

For the Chargers, they have a few players listed as questionable below, but by all accounts are reasonably healthy and will be at full strength for this game.
