Some good news for the Denver Broncos - if you ignore the starters they have placed on injured reserve over the last week - is that everyone on their injury report this week is expected to play. While both defensive lineman Mike Purcell and offensive lineman Graham Glasgow are listed as questionable, Head Coach Vic Fangio seemed fairly confident they would play against the New York Jets.
“I think Graham, right now, is going to play,” Fangio said on Friday. “Obviously, if something changes between now and game day, we would inform everybody.”
He went on to say that he felt pretty good about Purcell’s long-term availability. We’ll have to see if that means this week or next week.
The Jets put wide receiver Jamison Crowder down as doubtful for that game, which usually means he’ll likely be out. A surprise non-COVID illness for Tevin Coleman has him ruled out for the game as well.
Here is your full Friday practice participation report for both teams.
