Questionable. That is the state of the Denver Broncos when it comes to the health and availability of a slew of starters in Week 10 as they host the Philadelphia Eagles. A total of 10 players, seven of which are players who handle a lot of snaps on a weekly bases, are listed as questionable this week. They will also be without their offensive coordinator as Pat Shurmur has contracted COVID-19.

Colorado is a hot spot for COVID-19 spread, which has prompted the Broncos to issue a statement to any fans looking to attend Sunday’s game in person.
Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases locally, the Denver Broncos are strongly encouraging fans to follow the latest guidance from the City of Denver and State of Colorado by wearing masks throughout all indoor areas at Empower Field at Mile High beginning with Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
COVID concerns aside, head coach Vic Fangio also didn’t sound sure rookie cornerback Patrick Surtain would be healthy enough to play on Sunday despite the player’s official questionable status.
For the Eagles, only two players are questionable and every player on their list practiced in full on Friday. The biggest question mark will be tackle Andre Dillard who did suffer a knee injury during Friday’s practice session.
Here is your full Friday practice participation report for both teams.
