Sayre Bedinger

Dec 16, 2012; Baltimore, MD, USA; Denver Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen (81) catches a pass in front of Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed (20) to set up a touchdown at M

The final Broncos vs. Raiders injury report has been released by the teams, and it looks like the Broncos should be at full strength (save for OT Ryan Clady).

Champ Bailey and Joel Dreessen have missed the team’s first two games after missing some or all of the pre-season as well, and Shaun Phillips was held out of Saturday practice with what the team called “back spasms” but he says it was all precautionary.

For the Raiders, they will be without safety Tyvon Branch, a key piece of their defensive backfield and team in general. Branch is one of their best players regardless of position. Here are the final injury reports for both teams.
