ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Tackle Garett Bolles and tight end Noah Fant would not have practiced Tuesday, according to the team's estimated practice report.
The Broncos did not practice Tuesday ahead of Saturday's game against the Bills, but they released an estimated practice report.
Bolles missed the first game of his career on Sunday against the Panthers, as he fell ill once the team arrived in Charlotte. Fant played just five snaps against Carolina before leaving the game with an illness.
The two players remained in Charlotte overnight on Sunday before returning to Denver on Monday. Head Coach Vic Fangio said the players had not tested positive for COVID-19 and the illness was believed to be unrelated to the virus.
Fangio said Monday he was "optimistic" that both players could play Saturday against the Bills.
Cornerbacks Duke Dawson Jr. and Kevin Toliver II and running back Melvin Gordon III (shoulder) were estimated as non-participants, as well.
Fangio said Monday that Dawson and Toliver would miss the rest of the season with knee injuries.
Outside linebacker Bradley Chubb (neck), guard Graham Glasgow (foot), defensive end Shelby Harris (elbow), wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle), running back Phillip Lindsay (hip) and safety Trey Marshall (shin) were estimated to be limited participants.
Glasgow and Marshall did not play Sunday against Carolina.
Tackle Demar Dotson (hand), outside linebackers Malik Reed (ankle) and Derrek Tuszka (hand) would have been full participants, according to the team's estimation.
Tyrie Cleveland, who missed Sunday's game with an illness, was not listed on the team's injury report.
