Bengals Vs. Broncos Inactives: Champ Bailey, Brandon Lloyd Lead Denver's Inactives

The Denver Broncos announced on Sunday afternoon that all four of their questionable players will be out for the game with the Cincinnati Bengals: Champ Bailey, Elvis Dumervil, Brandon Lloyd and Knowshon Moreno. Lloyd had come out and run some warmups in uniform and pads, but left shortly after that, according to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post.

The Broncos will be thin at wide receiver with Eddie Royal and Eric Decker making the start. The only other receiver on the roster is Matt Willis because Demaryius Thomas (Achilles, broken finger) is also out for this game. Head coach John Fox will likely use tight ends Daniel Fells, Julius Thomas and Virgil Green a bit more as a result.

Knowshon Moreno's absence was long expected with the elevation of Jeremiah Johnson to the team. Cassius Vaughn will likely draw the start in Bailey's place and Jason Hunter will continue to fill in for Dumervil.

The Bengals will be missing starting defensive end Robert Geathers.
