The Denver Broncos had some bad news to report on Christmas as they officially ruled running back Phillip Lindsay out for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Lindsay is dealing with a hip / knee issue and was a non-participant all week in practice.

While Friday’s injury report was an estimation, they upgraded both outside linebacker Bradley Chubb from DNP to Limited and tackle Demar Dotson from Limited to Full. That could signal both players could be ready to play tomorrow.

For the Chargers, they ruled defensive end Joey Bosa out, which should help Drew Lock handle the pressure better in this game. However, they upgraded wide receiver Keenan Allen’s status from DNP to Limited and is questionable for this game. Against Denver’s depleted secondary, he could have a big game.

Here is your final injury update for the Broncos-Chargers game tomorrow.
