Kuper has yet to play in the 2012 season after breaking his forearm back on August 14th. As the Broncos prepared to take on the Patriots this week, Kuper returned to practice with the team, taking part as a full participant in the workouts on Thursday and Friday to leave a positive indication that he may play on Sunday.
Kuper is listed as probable on a favorable Broncos injury report with no other serious injuries on the roster. Also listed as probable are linebacker Nate Irving (concussion), cornerbacks Chris Harris (ankle) and Tracy Porter (shoulder), and wide receiver Matt Willis (hamstring).
If Kuper is unable to start his first game in front of quarterback Peyton Manning, the Broncos will continue using Manny Ramirez in his place at guard.
