ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos appear set to regain a couple of key players for Thursday night’s AFC West matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee) and cornerback Duke Dawson Jr. (foot) were not given game statuses for Thursday’s game. The lack of a game status on the week’s final injury report indicates that player is healthy enough to participate.
Dawson missed the Broncos’ Week 6 game against the Titans with his injury, while Sanders did not return to the game after halftime.
The Broncos did not hold full-speed practices this week and instead released estimations of a given player’s participation each day. Sanders and Dawson were both estimated as full participants on Wednesday.
Defensive end Derek Wolfe, who was estimated to be a limited participant on Monday and Tuesday with a hip injury, was also not given a game status and should be available.
The Broncos ruled out cornerback Bryce Callahan (foot) and listed tackle Ja’Wuan James (knee) as questionable.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, will be without five starters for Thursday’s game. Kansas City ruled out left tackle Eric Fisher, left guard Andrew Wylie, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, defensive tackle Chris Jones and cornerback Kendall Fuller.
