Broncos vs. Chargers Week 17 practice participation report: Thursday

The Denver Broncos came out of last week’s loss a bit banged up. Here’s where everyone stands here on Thursday.

NFL: New England Patriots at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

We missed yesterday’s injury update due to the Russell Wilson benching drama and all of the reports that came out of that messy situation. However, given how banged up the Denver Broncos are coming out of that brutal home loss to the ‘lowly’ New England Patriots, we need to start paying attention to the potential gameday status of these guys.

In the concussion protocol are both wide receiver Courtland Sutton and edge rusher Baron Browning, so their status for Sunday is likely highly in doubt. You have both Justin Simmons and Dwayne Washington battling an illness. You can probably assume they’ll be ready to at some point this week. Tight end Greg Dulcich is ever injured and I would suspect we don’t see him activated at all this year and wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. appears to have suffered a hamstring injury during practice this week.

For the Los Angeles Chargers, they have already fired their head coach and general manager while also losing Justin Herbert for the season. It’s looking like Keenan Allen still won’t be ready to go either and Joshua Palmer is in the concussion protocol. As banged up as the Broncos are, they should be able to compete in this game.

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