Broncos safeties listed as questionable for Super Bowl

Zz02N2Y2ZmU3NzNiYmNjNTQyYmYzMDcwODZhMTZjN2JiNw== AP

The two-week gap between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl results in a somewhat strange approach to the injury report. The teams scheduled to play in the title game supply traditional injury reports not only on the Friday before the Super Bowl but the preceding Friday.

The Panthers have seven players who currently are 50-50 propositions to play. The Broncos have three.

They are safety Darian Stewart (knee), guard Louis Vasquez (knee), and safety T.J. Ward (ankle). Neither Stewart nor Ward practiced all week.

Probable for the game are safety Josh Bush (shoulder), tight end Owen Daniels (knees), linebacker Todd Davis (shoulder), cornerback Chris Harris (shoulder), safety Shiloh Keo (quadricep), quarterback Peyton Manning (foot), linebacker Brandon Marshall (ankle), guard Evan Mathis (ankle), and linebacker DeMarcus Ware (knee).

While quarterback Brock Osweiler presumably won’t play in Super Bowl 50 (barring injury or blowout), Osweiler has exited the injury report for the first time this postseason, which means that his sprained MCL is healed.

    They should call up Alex Guerrero. He has a magical elxicer that cures knee injuries and he guarantees it. Just don’t let the Federal Trade Commission know, they’ll likely charge him with fraud…. Again.

    It doesn’t matter. Cam and his boys are going to wreck shop. All the HGH in the world can’t save Peyton now. The Broncos have been the victims of thrashings by the seachickens and 9ers. This whooping may be the worst of all.

    My understanding is that the report is based on hte assumption that the game would be THIS Sunday, not next Sunday. So they’re not really “questionable” for the Super Bowl next week — they’d be questionable if it were this week.

    41-12, Carolina.

    Would kind of love to see them put Osweiler in for a random series, just to mess with the Panthers.

    And I really hope you’re right. Their other 2 safeties were picked up off the street in December. Not enough of a big deal is being made about this. Its a total game changer if those guys are only 50% or out. Non coincidentally, that is also the only time the Patriots started to move the ball and throw down field

    time to pay Peyton’s wife a visit.

    They’ll be there. If not, it’s not a game changer at all. Last I checked, Gwonk will be at a strip club or something. Harassing Cam would have the same effect as harassing Tammy.

    Typical for ward, he has never been able to stay healthy for a whole season in the NFL. But, Cam will kill the horse faces no matter who plays….

  12. taintedsaints2009 says: Jan 29, 2016 8:04 PM

    Ward is a bum

  13. bleck5 says: Jan 29, 2016 8:19 PM

    Does it matter? The Broncos have been embarrassed multiple times in the big game and the same thing will ensue this time. Might even be the biggest.

  14. raiderhater719 says: Jan 29, 2016 8:47 PM

    You knowiknowitall… really i think you know nothing. You hear false stuff in the media and run with. Panthers havnt seen a defence like Denvers. We will come out on top. Peyton will manage the game well and the D will handle the rest.

  15. cos104 says: Jan 29, 2016 9:21 PM

    Tons of confidence for a Panthers team that ranked # 27 in strength of schedule. How will they handle adversity for the first time? I’ll take Wade Phillips over Shula any day in this chess match.

  16. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Jan 30, 2016 1:35 AM

    Greg Olsen is not Gronk so Denver backup safeties should be fine.

  17. phillyb60 says: Jan 30, 2016 2:27 AM

    Not a fan of either team, nor am I pulling for one nor the other. That said, I do believe no matter who wins it’ll be a great story. If Denver wins,Peyton is@least in the discussion w/2SB wins,4app+all his MvP’s,records Ect. Also GREAT Players like D.Ware(+Mathis,A.Smith,Talib..)will finally get a ring that’s much deserved. On the flip side, Car wins&they also have guys like Jared Allen(+Olsen,Davis,Johnson)who like D.Ware have been Cam will be considered the LeBron of NFL. A freakish blend of size&speed, a cannon for an arm, the ability to read a D&put his guys in the best scenario to succeed. combo

    It sounds like Denver players are done celebrating their surprising win at home as the #1 seed. And now reality is setting in and they realize what is about to happen. Now, cowardly players are looking for ways to avoid the embarrassment that awaits and there is no easier way to do so than to jake an injury. This will be the worst SB loss yet for Denver and that is saying something. Neutral site means no crowd noise and well… Carolina wins easy 41-9 while “injured” players sit this one out for orange.

  19. chebornek says: Jan 30, 2016 7:52 AM

    What’s it matter? Denver can’t ‘win’ a Super Bowl, unless they’re cheating the cap.

    Alex Smith & the Chiefs lit up that elite Denver defense twice this last season, Carolina is going to pull off a Seahawks impression and bury the Broncos by three scores.

    Peyton’s sliding out of his professional career much like he did against Nebraska when he was a Volunteer. Beaten, broken and benched.

  20. rgorr44 says: Jan 30, 2016 8:31 AM

    Manning has had trouble, even in his prime, in the big game. Why at almost 40 would this change? If he wins great but I wouldn’t bet the house on it.

  21. charlottenation says: Jan 30, 2016 8:45 AM

    I don’t put a lot of stick in this this week. Next Friday will be telling.

  22. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Jan 30, 2016 4:11 PM

    I am pretty certain if Wade Phillips can figure out how to stop an offense as complex as New England’s, he can figure out how to stop the high school offense the Panthers are running. Now if Denver’s offense gifts Carolina a couple of turnovers, then all bets are off.

  23. jgedgar70 says: Feb 1, 2016 12:29 PM

    I hope both teams are as healthy as possible. I don’t want Donkeys fans to have any excuse when we win.
