The Denver Broncos have an interesting injury report on Friday with nearly everyone listed as “Questionable”. The only player ruled out for Sunday’s game is reserve cornerback Darius Phillips. The good news is that a few key starters ramped up their practice time and even wide receiver Jerry Jeudy returned. He was looking good.
Pat Surtain also told reporters he is pretty confident that he’ll play on Sunday. That leaves, really, three DNP players from today’s injury status to look for on gameday. The biggest name there is interior defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones who is coming off a monster Week 2 performance. Tyrie Cleveland and Jonathon Cooper are the other two, but it is Jones who the Broncos would miss the most on Sunday.
The San Francisco 49ers will have tight end George Kittle back as he was a full participant in practice for the first time in weeks today. That is huge for them and tight ends have been able to find success against the Broncos defense at times.
Here is your full Broncos-49ers practice participation report for Friday.
