The Denver Broncos are definitely getting some key players back ahead of their Week 5 matchup with the New York Jets. They did trade Randy Gregory away to the San Francisco 49ers, but will be focusing on getting reps to the younger guys that position moving forward.
For this game, they look to get back edge rusher Frank Clark, inside linebacker Josey Jewell, and safety Justin Simmons. While both running back Javonte Williams and wide receiver Jerry Jeudy are back and full participants at practice. Having all five of these starters back should be a nice boost. And boost is what they need, because it has been a long time since Denver has won a home game. That was something Head Coach Sean Payton talked about today.
“We have a great home field advantage, and we have a great fan base,” Payton said. “We have to give them something to get excited about, and then take advantage of the noise.”
Beating the Jets will go a long way towards changing the narrative to the start of the season. Beating Nathaniel Hackett would also be a nice bonus. So yes, please give us something to get excited about on Sunday.
