Broncos vs. Lions practice participation report: Thursday

The Denver Broncos have a couple of injuries on defense to watch for as they prepare to take on the Detroit Lions in Week 14. Here is the full Thursday participation report.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos received some good news on Thursday with both edge rusher Bradley Chubb and interior defensive lineman Shelby Harris progressing from no participation to limited participation. Running back Melvin Gordon remained limited in practice, but head coach Vic Fangio seemed optimistic he’ll return on Sunday saying, “He did well. I think he’s progressing.”

Whether or not Gordon will split the reps with rookie Javonte Williams was left in the air. “We’ll see,” Fangio said. “It depends upon Melvin’s health and how he’s looking if he is active.”

As for the Detroit Lions, I don’t know what the Hell to make of their practice report today. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a team sit half their dang team for no reason. Maybe they’re all hung over from a multi-day celebration for their first win of the season? All kidding aside, the real reason for holding so many players out of practice was to prevent a severe outbreak of the flu among players this week.

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