Buccaneers at Broncos Thursday injury updates: Week 3

The Denver Broncos are the walking wounded in Week 3, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming to town relatively healthy.

The Denver Broncos are going to be without a lot of their best players in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The injury train started with Von Miller, who will be out a minimum of three months, then Phillip Lindsay and A.J. Bouye went down. The bad news kept coming with Drew Lock out 2-6 weeks after being injured on Sunday and Courtland Sutton is done for the year.

Whew, that’s a lot.

They did sign Blake Bortles to the active roster on Thursday and also safety P.J. Locke. They also added defensive lineman Deyon Sizer to the practice squad. All of those moves were necessary, because Mark Barron, Dre’Mont Jones, and DeMarcus Walker were moved to injured reserve.

Denver does have some wiggle room on the roster, but Head Coach Vic Fangio plans to wait until later this week to fill those spots.

“Not yet—we still have to see how these next couple of days go before we make the moves. We don’t have to make them until the end of the week, so we’ll just hold off until then if that’s OK.”

On the Bucs side of things, it looks like wide receiver Scotty Miller will be good to go on Sunday and Chris Godwin looks like he is fully back from his concussion. In short, all systems go for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
