Denver Broncos: Thursday Injury Report vs. Chargers
With only one more practice day until the Denver Broncos take on the San Diego Chargers, we take a look at the Thursday injury report.
It is crazy that the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers only faced off two weeks ago today. And in three days, they will do it again.
The Broncos and Chargers will meet for the second time in just 17 days on Sunday. The Broncos suffered, in my opinion, their worse loss to this point. They could not get anything going and it took a while for the defense to adjust and stop the Chargers offense.
In the meantime, it is important to find out who is on track to play on Sunday. The Broncos have a short week to prepare for the Chargers once again as the team played Monday Night against the Houston Texans.
The biggest news to come from the Broncos injury report so far has been the injury update on C.J. Anderson. In the next few hours, we will know how much time he will be missing.
For the time being, we know that he will miss this weekend’s game. But let us take a look at the other players on the injury report listed below.
The bigger concerns that I have for the Broncos are Brandon Marshall (hamstring), Aqib Talib (lower back), and Matt Paradis (hip). All three players did not participate in practice for the second straight day. Not sure if it is due to a precautionary issue with certain players, but this could be significant.

Matt Paradis is the Broncos best offensive lineman on the team, and Aqib Talib plays lights out in the secondary. Brandon Marshall is perhaps the team’s best tackler. Not having these guys on the field will make things challenging for the Broncos.
Demarcus Ware continues to be limited in practice. It’ll be interesting to see what his status will be on Friday when the final report comes out.
Not a whole lot to report on the Chargers as far as key injuries are concerned. We will keep up with them in case something does pop up.
