Kuper was the only Bronco who missed Thursday's practice ahead of a matchup with the Browns.
The Denver Broncos already know they'll be going to the playoffs. Six games ahead of their closest AFC West opponent, the San Diego Chargers, they've known for quite a while they'd be headed to the postseason. But there's still plenty at stake. Although they're in position to have a first round bye, the Houston Texans own home field advantage. If the Broncos win out and the Texans drop their final two games, the Broncos would have home field advantage.
With that in mind, they'd like to be as healthy as possible when they face the Cleveland Browns this Sunday at Mile High. Offensive guard Chris Kuper sat out his second straight day of practice with an ankle injury. Running back Chris Gronkowski was able to practice after sitting out Wednesday with a hamstring injury. Safety Mike Adams went from limited to full participant. Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson was limited for the second straight day with a groin injury.
