Broncos vs. Chargers practice participation report: Friday

Despite the bye, the Denver Broncos are still trying to get healthy. Meanwhile the Los Angeles Chargers are looking more ready to go on the injury front.

NFL: Washington Football Team at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are hurting despite the bye week. They will be without both starting tackles again this week with Bobby Massie doubtful. Kareem Jackson is also doubtful with a neck issue. It’s also a concern that Shelby Harris tweaked his ankle and is now questionable for Sunday too.

With both tackles out, the Broncos offense could get into trouble if they use pass-heavy playcalling. Head coach Vic Fangio didn’t seem too concerned about the line as he noted its just the next-man up type mentality for this team when it faces the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 12.

“No,” Fangio said on if facing Joey Bosa was a worry for him. “We’ve been playing that way for a few weeks. Obviously Bosa is a great player, great pass rusher. We have three of the five starters that are out with both tackles and Graham [Glasgow]. It’s the next-man-up mentality.”

Hopefully we see a very run-oriented game plan on Sunday. That should even out the threat of Bosa and help the Broncos offense get some momentum going in the trenches. We’ll have to wait and see if offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur agrees.

Here is your full Friday practice participation report for both teams.
