The Denver Broncos were largely healthy outside of injured reserve players with Melvin Gordon and Kareem Jackson both non-participants in Wednesday’s practice session.
The Denver Broncos are looking fairly healthy this week if you ignore the players they have on injured reserve right now. The only players to miss practice today for injury-related reasons were cornerback Mike Ford, running back Melvin Gordon III and safety Kareem Jackson. Defensive lineman Mike Purcell was also limited with a back issue. The rest were either full participants or were given rest days.
For the Las Vegas Raiders, they too are mostly healthy. Their only injury-related non-participant at practice on Wednesday was defensive tackle Jonathan Hankins. The rest were either limited or full participants. I would expect them to mostly be good to go for Sunday’s game.
In case you missed it, the Broncos signed wide receiver John Brown to the practice squad on Tuesday and they also added cornerback Rojesterman Farris to the practice squad as well today. Both moves help the team deal with some depth issues on both sides of the ball at those positions.
Here is your full Wednesday practice participation report for both teams.
