Denver Broncos guard Chris Kuper participated in a full practice Thursday for the first time during the 2012 regular season.

Denver Broncos guard Chris Kuper participated in a full practice Thursday for the first time since he broke his forearm in training camp Aug. 14. The team's Twitter feed had the news:

As of Wednesday, Broncos coach John Fox said that Kuper will be a game-time decision on Sunday, when Denver visits the New England Patriots in a 2:25 p.m. MST game. The seventh-year guard was still recovering from a leg injury sustained Jan. 1, playing only about half the first-team practice snaps, when he broke his arm.

Thursday's practice with Kuper marked the first time all year the entire 53-man Broncos roster fully participated in a practice. Sixth-year veteran Manny Ramirez has replaced Kuper in the Broncos lineup; after a rough go against J.J. Watt in Week 3, when he gave up 2½ sacks, Ramirez was better in Denver's 37-6 win over the Oakland Raiders Sept. 30.
