The Denver Broncos will once again be without Ju’Wuan James for their upcoming contest against the Buffalo Bills. Check out who else will not suit up.

Another game for the Denver Broncos where the starting right tackle will not be active for their upcoming contest. The team will be without Ju’Wuan James for the third straight game on Sunday. In fact, James has only been active for two games this season.

In both of those games, he ended up leaving the game early due to injury. He hurt his knee in the opening game against the Oakland Raiders and then re-aggravated the knee against the Indianapolis Colts.

Due to the injury, Elijah Wilkinson will get the start at right tackle. He has done well as of recently, so I do not see this impacting the game too much.

What I was more concerned with was Connor McGovern, Ron Leary, and Dalton Risner’s injuries. But according to the inactive list, those three players will suit up for Sunday’s game. Which is good news for Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman.

Tim Patrick carried the questionable tag going into Sunday with his injury. However, Adam Schefter reported early that Patrick was going to suit up. That is good news as the team will have Sutton and Patrick along with Noah Fant in the passing game.

For the rest of the inactive list, follow the link here. Other than the Ju’Wuan James injury, there is nothing else to report. The players that are inactive are players that are normally on the healthy scratch list.

One thing to focus in on is that Adam Gotsis will get the nod over Demarcus Walker in the game against the Bills. With the Bills focusing on the run game, it does make sense. Plus, Gotsis can get to the quarterback.

Hopefully today is win number four for the Denver Broncos. Here goes nothing.
