Broncos vs. Chargers practice participation report: Thursday

The Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers are hoping to get as healthy as possible before Sunday. Here is the full Wednesday participation report.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday, the Denver Broncos moved four players onto the reserve/COVID list and today four more. Cornerback Bryce Callahan, outside linebacker Stephen Weatherly, right tackle Bobbie Massie, and special teamer Mike Ford joined Tim Patrick, Caden Sterns, Calvin Anderson and Tyrie Cleveland on the list and all will must Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

There has been zero discussion of postponing the game. “No,” Vic Fangio said. “I don’t believe there’s been any discussions and wouldn’t anticipate there being any.”

We all know the NFL doesn’t seem to care about the Broncos competitive ability as we saw last year with them forcing the team start wide receiver Kendall Hinton at quarterback in a blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints. But I digress.

Practice was cancelled again on Thursday as Fangio is hoping to limit the spread as much as possible ahead of Sunday. If they did hold practice, the big changes would have been Kareem Jackson returning to limited and Drew Lock moving from limited to full. There does seem to be some non-COVID illnesses going around as you can see from the injury report below.

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