Denver Broncos Injury Report: Brian Dawkins, Eddie Royal Miss Wednesday Practice

The Denver Broncos are hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend as the winners of the AFC West division, but they're sure to be challenged after struggling down the stretch of the regular season. The Broncos have lost three consecutive games going into Wild Card weekend, and they're likely to be without of the defense's key veteran voices as they try to stifle Ben Roethlisberger and company.

Denver's full injury report can be found here, but it's show below:

Full Participation

- LB Von Miller

Limited Participation

- S David Bruton

Did Not Participate

- WR Eddie Royal

- S Brian Dawkins

- FB Spencer Larsen

Dawkins, even at 37, has been one of the key parts of an extremely effective Broncos defense. He started 12 times for Denver this season, recording 38 tackles and three sacks, but he's battled a neck injury in recent weeks. The Broncos will likely miss Royal's presence, too, although other playmakers emerged in recent weeks, such as Eric Decker.
