The Broncos released their final injury report of the week and they have two defensive starters who they sorely missed during week one listed as questionable. Both sound like game-time decisions with the way Head Coach Vic Fangio spoke about them after Friday’s practice. Even if they are active for Sunday’s game, they likely will be eased into action since both have missed a good amount of time this summer.
Tackle Ja’Wuan James is listed as out for Sunday’s game and is expected to be out for a few weeks after spraining his knee against the Raiders. Elijah Wilkinson will get the start at right tackle against the Bears fearsome pass rush.
Joining James will be fullback Andy Janovich and linebacker Joseph Jones who are nearing the end of their rehabs and could be returning to the team potentially by next week or week four at the latest. The Broncos could really use both players right now.
As for the Bears, they have four players listed as questionable. Starting nose tackle Eddie Goldman, starting tight end Trey Burton, linebacker Nick Kwiatkowski and defensive lineman Bilal Nichols
