ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have listed four players as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bills, including starting right guard Graham Glasgow.
Running backs Melvin Gordon III (shoulder) and Phillip Lindsay (hip) and safety Trey Marshall (shin) will also be listed as questionable.
These game statuses may be subject to change when the Broncos conclude their Thursday afternoon practice. All four players were participating during the media-viewing portion early in the practice.
Head Coach Vic Fangio said the Broncos will use Thursday's practice and Glasgow's status on Friday to determine whether he's able to play.
"Just that he's getting closer and closer every day," said of Fangio of what he's looking for from Glasgow. "Today will be a good indicator because we're going to practice today — have a normal practice [and] see how he does with that, see how he wakes up tomorrow with it and see where he's at. We'll have to make the decision — if he's only 80-85 percent, are we better going with [G Netane] Muti than him? Or, you know, if Graham can say he's more 90-95 percent, we'll go with Graham."
Fangio said it was possible the Broncos could also start Glasgow and rotate Muti in for some snaps.
"That's something we would see how the game is going, how Graham's playing, how he's feeling, and go from there," Fangio said. "But definitely based on the way Muti played last week, we'd feel definitely comfortable doing that."
Muti, a 2020 sixth-round draft pick, made his first career start in the team's Week 14 win over Carolina.
"You're not supposed to have favorites, but I really like what he does," Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur said of Muti. "He's very strong and explosive, but yet he's mobile. The one block he made on the screen to the right, where he ran flat and cut the defender, that was awesome. You can't see a lot of people be able to do that — get in there and wrestle bears like they do at guard, but then have the quickness and the instincts to be able to go out and cut a guy. A lot of players can't cut and block low because it takes some initial quickness. He showed in a few snaps why he's got a very, very bright future. It's exciting."
Fangio said earlier in the week he believed Gordon and Lindsay would be available to play Saturday. The Broncos also did not assign game statuses to Garett Bolles (illness) and Noah Fant (illness), which indicates they'll be available to play Saturday.
