The Denver Broncos held out defensive lineman D.J. Jones of practice on Wednesday as he is in the concussion protocol. Guard Dalton Risner was also not practicing as he is nursing an ankle injury. Also back to not practice is right tackle Billy Turner who has yet to appear in a game for Denver.
Turner is continuing to suffer some setbacks in his knee rehab. On that front, Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett said, “We’re just trying to get him over that hump.” That makes me think he is close, but just not fully ready to go full bore on that knee just yet.
Also on the DNP list was Randy Gregory, Tyrie Cleveland, and Jonathon Cooper. Gregory is likely a rest day, while the other two are working back from their injuries. The good news from this list is that Quinn Meinerz and Baron Browning are both progressing in the right direction. Hopefully most of the guys on this injury report will be good to go against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
Here is your full Broncos-Raiders practice participation report for Wednesday.
