Denver Broncos starting right guard Chris Kuper continues to rehabilitate the broken forearm he sustained during training camp in mid-August, and so sat out Thursday's practice. Kuper is probably still at least a week away from returning to game action, though he did practice on Wednesday.
Other than Kuper, Denver's team health remains good. Cornerback Chris Harris was limited in practice Thursday, but is expected to be available against Houston Sunday. Linebacker Von Miller was a full participant, after taking limited reps on Wednesday.
For Houston, linebacker Brian Cushing was a limited participant in Thursday's practice with a rib injury. Linebacker Tim Dobbins sat out with a hamstring injury. Bryan Braman, Brooks Reid and Antonio Smith were also limited for the Texans.
