ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --The 2016 seasons for T.J. Ward, Derek Wolfe and A.J. Derby officially came to an end Friday when Head Coach Gary Kubiak ruled them out for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Inside linebacker Brandon Marshall, who has practiced this week through a hamstring injury, is listed as questionable.
Ward and Derby have not practiced since suffering concussions in the Dec. 18 loss to New England. Wolfe did not practice all week after suffering a second neck injury in as many games in last Sunday's loss at Kansas City.
With Wolfe and Ward among those ruled out, the Broncos will play Sunday without six players who were intended starters this season -- including four on injured reserve: RB C.J. Anderson, FB Andy Janovich, DE Vance Walker and OLB DeMarcus Ware.
