Broncos Injury Update: Darian Stewart returns to practice


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --Darian Stewart practiced for the first time since injuring his hamstring against the Raiders on Dec. 13 as the Broncos returned to the field after a day off to celebrate Christmas.

"It felt good, man," Stewart said. "I think my confidence is there, and I'll be ready to go."

Stewart and fellow safety T.J. Ward are both listed as questionable for Monday night's duel with the Cincinnait Bengals, but their on-field progress was promising in the eyes of Head Coach Gary Kubiak.


"[Ward] practiced good today," Kubiak said. "I feel good about his work. We've still got a lot of time between now and game time, but he and Darian felt good about their work today."

Until this week, Ward was limited to rehabilitation work since he sprained his ankle Nov. 29 against the Patriots. Stewart had focused on rehabilitation the last 13 days, but was on hand watching practice while he recovered.

"One thing with the hammy, the biggest thing is getting rest on it," Stewart said. "The trainers and coaches worked with me, and they allowed me to get the rest."

ILB Todd Davis also practiced for the first time this week and is questionable for Monday night. Davis was sidelined with a shoulder injury Wednesday and Thursday.

QB Peyton Manning (torn plantar fascia) and safety Omar Bolden (hamstring) were the only Broncos who did not practice Saturday; both were officially ruled out.

All other players on the injury report had full practice workloads and are probable for Sunday: RB C.J. Anderson (ankle), WR Andre Caldwell (quadriceps), TE Owen Daniels (knees), WR Bennie Fowler (ankle), guard Evan Mathis (ankle), OLB Lerentee McCray (hamstring), QB Brock Osweiler (left shoulder), DE Vance Walker (shoulder) and OLB DeMarcus Ware (back).
