Broncos vs Chiefs final injury update: Ja’Wuan James ruled out again

New, comments

For every possibility of a return to full-time work, Ja’Wuan James has a setback. The Denver Broncos will be without him yet again this week as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

When the Denver Broncos inked right tackle Ja’Wuan James to an impressive 4-year, $51 million deal in March that included a hefty $12 million signing bonus, 63 total snaps through thirteen games is not exactly what they were hoping for. However, it would appear that is what they’ll be getting.

Along with James, Denver will have be down Adam Gotsis, Ron Leary, and DeMarcus Walker. The interior defensive line is looking thin, so the team sent rookie wide receiver Juwann Winfree to injured reserve and called up Kyle Peko to the active roster. Meanwhile, Noah Fant, Dre’Mont Jones, and Joe Jones are all questionable in this game.

On the Kansas City Chiefs side of things, they’ll be without cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Rashad Fenton, while both Frank Clark and Damien Williams are questionable heading into this matchup.
