The Denver Broncos are got a lot of their players back onto the field, but three were held out including running back Javonte Williams. Both Dre’Mont Jones and Kenny Young also did not participate on Thursday.
“Dre’Mont [Jones] won’t practice today,” Kenny Young won’t practice, and Javonte [Williams] is not going to practice,” Fangio said on Thursday. “He’s just got a little leg issue. We’re going to give him the day off. Everybody else is limited or full.”
The good news is that it looks like Williams will be good to go by Sunday and Fangio was just giving him a rest day.
For the Cincinnati Bengals, they also got a big chunk of their injury list back to full strength on Thursday. They did lose Chidobe Awuzie to the Reserve/COVID-19 list. They also have a slew of illnesses. The Detroit Lions COVID outbreak last week began in much the same way with a slew of flu illnesses followed by a slew of COVID-19 positives. That is definitely a situation that will need to be monitored give the massive COVID-19 outbreak across the entire NFL right now.
Here is your full Thursday practice participation report for both teams.
