Broncos vs. Chargers Week 14 practice participation report: Wednesday

The Denver Broncos came out of the loss to the Houston Texans a little banged up, but everyone was at least a limited participant on Wednesday.

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

The Denver Broncos came out of their 22-17 loss to the Houston Texans a bit banged up, but not terribly so. There was the scary knee injury to Patrick Surtain II, but he was able to come back and finish playing in the game. Overall, everyone who got dinged up were at least limited participants in practice on Wednesday as they team prepared to play the Los Angeles Chargers.

The biggest issue now is that the 6-6 Broncos need to get back to winning right away. Head Coach Sean Payton noted how high the stakes were today.

“When I first got into coaching, a lot of the time teams would divide the season into quarters because it was 16 weeks,” Payton said. “Now, it’s 17. We’re in that last quarter poll, and there are a lot of teams that are kind of sitting where we are. This stretch will be important, and it’s pretty obvious.”

If 10 wins is what it takes to get into the AFC Playoffs, then Denver must finish 4-1 down the stretch to get to that finish line and play some relevant playoff football in January.
