Broncos vs. Raiders Week 18 practice participation report: Wednesday

The Denver Broncos might have to roll without tackle Mike McGlinchey against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 18.

The Denver Broncos are out of playoff contention, but there is still a chance at two significant achievements they can grab with a win over the Las Vegas Raiders this week. One is to finish with a winning record at 9-8 and the other would be their first winning record in the AFC West since 2015. Both would set a positive tone heading into the offseason.

“I think getting nine wins is important, and I think it’s important for our players to understand that,” Head Coach Sean Payton said on Wednesday. “I think they do, as well. Heading into next season—there are a ton of these peaks and valleys during any NFL season. When you look at a team like Philadelphia—it just comes with everyone. Certainly, we had our fair share, but I think finishing strong is important.”

To do that, they’ll need to see how some of their starters progress back into the lineup for this week. The good news is both Marvin Mims Jr. and Courtland Sutton were limited and trending towards full. Same with Josey Jewell and Baron Browning who were also limited on Wednesday. The biggest question mark centers around tackle Mike McGlinchey’s status for Sunday.
