The Denver Broncos will have a tough rotation along their offensive line with two starters and a backup out for their game against the Oakland Raiders. There was some hope that Elijah Wilkinson would be available, but Head Coach Vic Fangio squashed those rumors on Thursday saying it was ‘pretty iffy’ on Wilkinson’s prognosis for Sunday.
The Raiders got all of their players back to full strength on Friday, except for one major piece of their offensive puzzle. Running back Josh Jacobs is doubtful here, but according to Ian Rapport, Jacobs is unlikely to even join the team this weekend and is not expected to play against the Broncos.
Both teams will have to deal with these adversities. The winner will lock down second place in the AFC West, but Oakland does have a very long shot chance at making the playoffs with a win. Denver will be looking to take those dreams away on Sunday.
Here are the final injury reports for both the Broncos and Raiders.
