In something of a remarkable development, Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan was limited in practice again on Friday afternoon and is considered questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, per Andrew Mason at

From the article, Trevathan explains his status, which includes the fact that he will indeed make the trip to Seattle this weekend with the team.

"“Oh, yeah, I view myself as definitely an option,” the third-year weakside linebacker said. “If I need to play, I will. Right now, I’m questionable.”“No doubt, I’d be ready to go,” Trevathan added later. “But it’s in (the team’s) hands to make the final call. I’m questionable, so I’m going to take it one day (at a time) like I’m questionable.”“The hard part is just sitting down and waiting to get back out there,” he said. “I’ve been waiting for a long time.”"

It would be a pretty crazy comeback if Trevathan was able to return for the Broncos’ showdown with Seattle on Sunday, but we wouldn’t put it past him. He’s not really setting any deadlines for himself to come back to game action, but if he’s indeed ready to go, it might not be a bad idea for the Broncos to get him some snaps. The safe call is to keep him out and let him get his legs right health-wise before he comes back full time, but Trevathan gives the Broncos another dynamic defensive player that can make plays all over the field. It’d be hard to keep him off the field if he’s ready to get on it.

As conservative as the Broncos are, it wouldn’t shock me to see Trevathan among the inactives again on Sunday, but that wouldn’t be all bad as signs point to his progress bringing him back at worst by the time the bye week has come to a conclusion.
