The Denver Broncos will be on the road on Christmas Day to take on the Los Angeles Rams and they could see several key starters return to the lineup for this game. Randy Gregory and Kendall Hinton were both DNP’s on Wednesday, but Courtland Sutton and K’Waun Williams were both LIMITED. It would be really good to see both of those guys return to the lineup in Week 16.
One key omission on the injury update was quarterback Russell Wilson. Despite our poll this week around the idea of potentially shutting him down for the season, it would seem the team has no intention of doing that. When asked how he feels this week, Wilson had zero concerns.
“I feel great. [I’m] super aware,” Wilson said on Wednesday. “The medical team here did a great job. To be able to heal quickly and just to be able to get back on the field and be able to practice Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I was ready to roll. To give me an extra week and let those guys get in there — Brett [Rypien] did a great job stepping up and stepping in. I’m ready to rock and roll.”
Denver is coming off a strong 24-point performance against the NFL’s worst scoring defense in the Arizona Cardinals that is giving up nearly 27-points per game this season. The Rams are slightly better, but are still middle of the road. It would be nice to see Denver keep putting up 20+ in games.
