The Denver Broncos continue to get healthier with tight end Greg Dulcich coming back to practice after missing several weeks to a hamstring issue. Whether or not he’ll play against the Kansas City Chiefs is an unknown, but given the short timeframe here I’d lean towards him coming back next week.
Head Coach Sean Payton noted that he’s close, but did express some caution about his immediate availability.
“He’s out here moving around,” Payton said of Dulcich today. “He’s still out here. Hopefully the sooner the better. He’s been working his tail off and I know they’re going through a bunch of stuff now [with] explosive drills and making sure there’s not a setback. I don’t want to guess relative to this week’s game, but he’s close.”
Payton was also asked about running back Javonte Williams and he noted that if it were a playoff game that he would have played on Sunday, but given its just regular season they played it safe to avoid any setbacks. That would seem to suggest we’ll see Williams back in action this Thursday night.
