For the Broncos, the good news is that tight end Noah Fant participated fully in today’s practice after putting in a limited practice on Wednesday. He appears to be healthy and returning to the team this Sunday vs. the Chiefs.
Pass rusher Bradley Chubb and nose tackle Mike Purcell also had full practices today after being limited on Wednesday.
Speedy rookie wide receiver K.J. Hamler remained limited and could be headed to a game-time decision as he tries returning from a hamstring injury.
For the bad news, starting left guard Dalton Risner remained sidelined with a shoulder injury. He seems more doubtful than questionable right now, but his Friday participation will be the deciding factor there.
Oft-injured tight end Jake Butt was a late addition to the injury report. He was limited with a hamstring injury so that will be something to keep an eye on moving forward into Friday.
As for the Chiefs, it was the same exact injury report as it was on Wednesday.
Here is your full Denver Broncos and Kansas City Thursday injury report.
