ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Three of the Broncos’ five starting offensive linemen missed practice Wednesday, but Head Coach Vic Fangio said he thinks they’ll “all be ready” for Sunday’s game against Buffalo.
Left guard Dalton Risner (ankle), center Connor McGovern (back) and right guard Ron Leary (shoulder/neck) were all held out of the session.
Right tackle Ja’Wuan James, who last played against Indianapolis, was limited with a knee injury. James has only appeared in two games this season.
Fangio said James and tight end Jeff Heuerman (knee) were “still questionable” for Sunday.
“I would say it’s truly 50-50,” Fangio said. “[I] don’t know yet.”
James will “be able to play eventually,” according to Fangio.
“It could be this week or next week, but he’s got a knee injury,” Fangio said. “It’s not too serious, but that’s easy for me to say. It’s not my knee.”
Linebacker Joe Jones (foot), linebacker Justin Hollins (hamstring) and wide receiver Tim Patrick (shoulder) also missed practice.
