The Denver Broncos suffered a big setback in their final injury update ahead of the Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Safety Caden Sterns was downgraded from limited to DNP on Saturday with a hip issue and ruled out for this week. He will join inside linebacker Josey Jewell as the other player ruled out as well.
For the good news, a good many of the players listed as questionable will likely be able to play this week and that includes offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz. Denver’s run game has languished without him over the last several weeks, so it could be huge to have him back finally. Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett thought he could be ready to go this week saying, “I think he’s definitely better than he has been before this. So we’re looking forward to hopefully getting him out there.”
The Chargers, on the other hand, are looking less confident wide receiver Keenan Allen will be able to come back from a hamstring injury to play this week. He is listed as doubtful.
