ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Safety Kareem Jackson (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers, but Head Coach Vic Fangio said he thinks “he’ll be able to make it.”
Jackson was a full participant in Friday’s practice after being limited earlier in the week.
“He did a good bit,” Fangio said of Jackson’s workload Friday. “I don’t have the exact number, but he did a good bit.”
Fangio said he’d like Jackson to stay at safety. The veteran defensive back has also played nickel cornerback this season.
“We need to settle in where Kareem’s going to be and not move him around,” Fangio said. “He missed a lot of time in camp with his hamstring. [He] didn’t get to play in any preseason games, and [then] we moved him around. I’d like to see him settle into a spot and get comfortable.”
Linebacker Josey Jewell (hamstring) and tackle Ja’Wuan James (knee) are also questionable for Sunday’s game. Jewell did not practice this week, while James was limited in all three practices.
“He’s just got to get healthy,” Fangio said of James. “The first week after his injury didn’t go as smooth as normal. The swelling kind of persisted, so it set back his original recovery time. He just has to get healthy and get confident and feel like he can move around.”
If Jewell cannot play, Fangio said a “committee of guys” will play at linebacker next to Todd Davis.
Cornerback Bryce Callahan was the only Bronco ruled out.
