Thursday marked the first time all season that the all members of the 53-man roster for the Broncos were on the field and healthy. Kuper had full participation in practice for the first time since breaking his forearm during training camp.
Kuper had been fighting through an ankle injury during the offseason before breaking his arm, and coach John Fox says the center is "excited" about the idea of getting back on the field.
"He's been through a lot with the ankle in the offseason and forearm in the preseason," Fox said of the team captain. "At the end of the day, he'd much rather be out here than in the training room, so I'm sure he's excited about it."
The Broncos face the Patriots on Sunday, with kickoff set for 2:25 p.m. MT.
