The Denver Broncos continue to work through their game plan for Thursday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts. Tuesday was another “simulated” practice, so these are just estimations on where players are at. Caden Sterns went from DNP to limited, so that would be good news there. Both Dalton Risner and K’Wuan Williams moved from limited to full.
Week 4 would have been the first week the Broncos could have activated both cornerback Michael Ojemudia and rookie tight end Greg Dulcich from injured reserve. It seems Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett is content to start their return clock next week.
“Yeah, we haven’t activated their clocks right now,” Hackett said. “We wanted to be sure we got them some practice. So obviously we can still potentially play them, but we just want to do the right thing for them.”
For the Colts, they got some good news regarding star running back Jonathan Taylor who is working back from a high ankle sprain. He apparently feels a lot better today, but that wasn’t enough for the team to suggest he would be a limited participant in practice. The rumors are that he’ll be a go, but anyone who has watched football for a long time knows how nagging an ankle injury can be. It might be wise to sit him this week... at least from my orange and blue perspective!
