I have been keeping an eye on the injury reports for both teams this week. From that standpoint, the Broncos are all relatively healthy. For the Patriots, quite a handful of players have been limited.
Perhaps this is the way Bill Belichick plays the injury report. I would not be surprised to see the majority of them listed as probable for this game. There is no way players like Gronkowski and Edelman miss this game.
A bit of news that did pop up for the Broncos on the injury front is that John Elway announced that Chris Harris Jr. would be a game time decision for the game. That threw off Harris Jr. when asked at Thursday’s news conference.
He states that his shoulder is doing just fine, but it will be something we will be keeping an eye on as we get closer to game time. But Broncos fans also know he will be a big part of the defensive game plan for the Broncos.
This looks like it is going to shape up to be a great matchup between two really good football teams. I am really excited for it.
