Broncos at Chiefs gameday inactives: Denver down multiple defensive linemen

New, comments

The Denver Broncos defensive front is looking a bit thin this week against the Kansas City Chiefs. They’re also down two starting offensive linemen.

The Denver Broncos will be playing in the snow in Week 15 in Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs, but they’ll be down some key plays on both lines.

On the defense line, they’ll be missing DeMarcus Walker, Adam Gotsis, and rookie Dre’Mont Jones. They have activated Kyle Peko this week fresh off the street to help with the defensive line rotation. To add to that, they will also be missing Ja’Wuan James again this week and also Ron Leary. So the offensive line will be down some starters as well.

Having several inches of snow on the ground with more on the way may help or hurt the situation, but hopefully it’ll help by slowing everyone down a bit.

The good news for Denver is that rookie tight end Noah Fant will be active after suffering that foot injury last week, so Drew Lock will have some weapons available to him in this game.

Here is the full list of inactives for both teams.
