The Broncos have dealt with their fair share of injuries. As their postseason opener approaches, however, most of their injured players not on injured reserve look to be ready to go.
Defensive lineman Derek Wolfe, who hasn’t played since November 24 due to an illness, remains out of practice. All other injured players fully participated in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.
The injured-but-practicing are cornerback Champ Bailey (shoulder), receiver Wes Welker (concussion), quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle), tight end Joel Dreessen (knee), safety Duke Ihenacho (concussion), tackle Winston Justice (finger), guard Chris Kuper (ankle), center Steve Vallos (concussion), and cornerback Kayvon Webster (thumb).
The Broncos host the Chargers on Sunday, one month to the day after losing to San Diego at home.
