With four games left as a rookie, [DeMarcus] Walker is eager to prove he’s learned from the struggles he’s encountered since seeing Denver snow for the first time in April. With end Derek Wolfe now on injured reserve with a neck injury and the timeline for injured nose tackle Domata Peko’s return uncertain, Walker could have a larger role in the final four games.

“Our goal is to play well for our fans and I can promise our fans one thing, they will play hard for them on Sunday,” coach Vance Joseph said. “Being home is always a good thing. We’re looking forward again to having a clean slate and to win a football game at home in front of our fans. But we do get the frustrations because we have them also.”
