The Denver Broncos received some positive injury news on Thursday as four of their DNP players from yesterday have progressed to limited today. Those limited participants were offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz, defensive lineman Mike Purcell, and cornerbacks Damarri Mathis and K’Waun Williams. That would put them all on track to be in consideration to play against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. They also saw Baron Browning progress from limited to full, so he should be good to go as well.
With the Chargers possibly resting their key starters this week, the Broncos have a reasonable chance to come out with a season-ending win to finish 5-12 on the season. When asked about that, interim head coach Jerry Rosburg quipped, “We are expecting [American professional boxer] Sonny Liston out there. If [American comic strip boxer] Joe Palooka shows up, then so be it.”
