Broncos vs. Lions Week 15 practice participation report: Thursday

The Denver Broncos will be without Nik Bonitto this Saturday against the Detroit Lions. Here’s both teams final injury report.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Despite activating tight end Greg Dulcich from the injured reserve this week, he won’t be ready to take the field for the Denver Broncos. He had practiced fully on Wednesday, but popped up on Thursday as a non-participant with the report noting he is also dealing with a foot issue now. Edge rusher Nik Bonitto is also ruled out, but that was expected with the knee injury he suffered last week.

The good news for Denver is that safety P.J. Locke progressed to a limited participant today and is listed as questionable. He has developed into a key part of the Broncos secondary with Kareem Jackson serving that four-game suspension.

As for the Detroit Lions, they slap that questionable status on all their guys except the backup quarterback. I would guess that means the other four at likely going to play on Saturday.

Here is your full Broncos-Lions practice report for Thursday.
