Cornerback Chris Harris Jr., wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and outside linebacker Bradley Chubb were all tabbed as alternates.

  • Harris tallied three interceptions, one sack and 49 tackles during his 12 starts in 2018. In Week 7, he returned one of those picks for a touchdown. He suffered a leg injury in Week 13 against the Bengals.
  • Sanders, who suffered an Achilles injury in practice ahead of the Broncos' game against the 49ers, tallied 71 catches for 868 yards and four receiving touchdowns. He also ran for a touchdown and threw a touchdown this season. The Broncos placed Sanders on IR ahead of their Week 14 game.
  • Chubb, the fifth-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, could earn his first Pro Bowl selection. In Week 14, he passed Von Miller for the most sacks by a rookie in Broncos history. He sits just three sacks away from passing Jevon Kearse's all-time rookie sack record. Ten-and-a-half of Chubb's 12 sacks have come since Week 6.
