The Denver Broncos took two steps forward and five steps back on the injury front on Thursday. Both offensive lineman Tom Compton (illness) and kicker Brandon McManus (quad) moved from DNP to limited on Thursday, but five new players were added to the injury report to compensate for the good news.
The biggest concern with the new additions is interior defensive lineman D.J. Jones suffering a shoulder injury and was added to the injury report today as a DNP. The rest of the new additions were limited at least, which suggests they could be okay to go come gameday against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
According to Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett, the Jones issue doesn’t sound as bad as it could be saying, “He had discomfort today, so we’re just taking care of it and taking all precautions.” The coaching staff just isn’t taking any chances.
