Broncos-Raiders Thursday Injury Report: Denver Getting Healthy

Well, you aren’t going to see Ryan Clady on the injury report, because he’s out for the season. Despite that awful news this week, the Broncos actually are running pretty healthy right now. In fact, they are so healthy that the entire 53-man roster practiced on Thursday, even though some guys were being eased back into action.

A couple of very welcome sights on the field for practice in full pads were cornerback Champ Bailey and tight end Joel Dreessen, who have been out since the pre-season or in the case of Dreessen, even longer.

Running back CJ Anderson, the undrafted free agent who made the Broncos’ roster this year, is finally practicing in full after injuring his knee shortly after the team’s first pre-season game in practice. Anderson could simply be a gameday inactive, but there are some who believe he has a chance to contribute right away in goal-line situations.

Here are the full injury reports for both teams as of Thursday.
