Raiders Vs. Broncos Injury Update: Brodrick Bunkley Practices, Marcus Thomas Still Out

The Denver Broncos have had issues with injuries at defensive tackle this preseason and that may hurt them come Monday against the Oakland Raiders.

The Denver Broncos received good news and bad news on its defensive line on Thursday. Brodrick Bunkley returned to practice while Marcus Thomas did not, reports Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post. However, we'll need to wait for the official injury report to come out on Thursday.

If Bunkley is ready to play on Monday he should start alongside Kevin Vickerson. Marcus Thomas started the first preseason game at defensive tackle with Ty Warren, but Thomas strained a pectoral muscle and has been out ever since and it appears unlikely that he will play on Monday. Warren has had surgery to repair a torn triceps muscle and might be able to come back in December.

In Raiders injury news, receiver Louis Murphy, tight end Kevin Boss and safety Mike Mitchell are all unknowns until the injury report comes out, reports the Contra Costa Times. Receivers Derek Hagan and Chaz Schilens returned to practice, but their game status is also unknown.
