Injury Report: Fant, Bolles both 'fine' after battling illness

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Tight end Noah Fant and tackle Garett Bolles are "fine" after battling an illness earlier in the week, Head Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday.

Both players would have been full participants in practice Wednesday, according to an estimation released by the team.

The Broncos held a walkthrough on Wednesday instead of a traditional practice in advance of their Saturday matchup with the Bills.

Fant and Bolles were estimated as non-participants on Tuesday's report. Bolles did not play Sunday against the Panthers, while Fant played just five plays before exiting the game.

Fangio said the team was still uncertain what caused the illness.

"I don't know if it was something to do with food or just a little 24-hour bug," Fangio said. "I'm not really sure what it was."

Melvin Gordon III, who was also estimated as non-participant on Tuesday, was upgraded to a limited participant with a shoulder injury. Phillip Lindsay (hip) was also limited, but Fangio said he expected both players to be ready for Saturday.

"I think they'll both be OK by the end of the week," Fangio said.

Duke Dawson Jr. and Kevin Toliver II remained on the report with knee injuries, but Fangio announced earlier this week that the two players would miss the rest of the season.

Guard Graham Glasgow (foot), defensive end Shelby Harris (elbow), and safety Trey Marshall (shin) remained limited participants according to the estimation, while wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) would have been a full participant.

Tackle Demar Dotson (hand) and outside linebackers Malik Reed (ankle) and Derrek Tuszka (hand) remained full participants, according to the estimation.
