Some notes

  • Offensive lineman Lucas Niang (knee) and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) did not practice for the second day in a row. That’s the bad news for the Chiefs.
  • The good news is that the three starters who were limited on Wednesday — offensive lineman Orlando Brown Jr. (calf), linebacker Anthony Hitchens (knee) and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (knee) — were full participants on Wednesday.
  • The Broncos placed three players on injured reserve, ruling them out for Sunday: quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (concussion), offensive guard Dalton Risner (elbow) and safety Kareem Jackson (back/shoulder). Cornerback Pat Surtain II (calf) remained out of practice on Wednesday.
  • Defensive end Shelby Harris (ankle) did not practice Wednesday after being limited on Tuesday. Six other Broncos were limited, while cornerback/special teamer Nate Hairston missed the workout due to illness.
  • The Broncos are counting on quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) to start against the Chiefs despite his limited status on Tuesday and Wednesday.
