The Denver Broncos are the surprise team that's still in the NFL playoffs thanks to the heroics in last week's stunning victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. They're now preparing for their newest challenge, the New England Patriots team that easily beat them in December.
The good news for Broncos fans is that star linebacker Von Miller wasn't limited in practice on Wednesday and should be good to go against New England, but the Denver defense will also be without Brian Dawkins once again, unfortunately. Denver's full injury report can be found here, but it's shown below:
- LB Von Miller
- DE Elvis Dumervil
- TE Daniel Fells
- S David Bruton
- S Brian Dawkins
- WR Eric Decker
It was already reported earlier on Wednesday that Dawkins and Decker didn't practice, but now that's official. Dumervil, Fells and Bruton were all limited, but they played and are expected to be active against the Patriots this weekend.
