Broncos Injury Report: Matt Paradis, Derek Wolfe good to go


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- **Right tackle Donald Stephenson (calf), inside linebacker Todd Davis (high ankle sprain) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) were all listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the Patriots, Head Coach Vance Joseph announced.

Defensive end Derek Wolfe, who sat out Thursday because of a neck problem, and center Matt Paradis, who missed Wednesday's practice and was limited Thursday because of a back issue, were not listed as questionable or doubtful, so both players are expected to play.

Running back C.J. Anderson, who sat out Thursday because of an illness, also returned to practice Friday and is set to play.

"He had a stomach issue and is totally fine," Joseph said.

Stephenson is one of "three options" the Broncos have at right tackle, Joseph said. Veteran Allen Barbre and rookie Elijah Wilkinson are also available.

Wilkinson was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster last month after Stephenson injured his calf three days before the Week 7 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

"[Wilkinson] is coming along well," Joseph said. "He's a young player; he's a physical player; he's a smart player. If he had to play, I'd be OK with that."

These five individual matchups could go a long way in deciding who comes out on top on Sunday between the Broncos and Patriots.
