With an high-profile contest against the Baltimore Ravens set for Sunday, the Denver Broncos are relatively healthy. Just two players were held back in practice on Thursday.
Only guard Chris Kuper (ankle) and linebacker Wesley Woodyard (ankle) were limited in Thursday's practice, as everyone else on the roster was a full go. Most importantly, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was a full participant for the second straight day after recently dealing with a shoulder issue. Receivers Matthew Willis and Trindon Holliday were also full participants despite knee injuries.
The Denver Broncos have already clinched the AFC West thanks in large part to the eight-game winning streak they're currently riding. However, there's still plenty to play for in the final three weeks of the season. The Broncos currently hold the AFC's third seed at 10-3. The New England Patriots are also 10-3, but they own the head-to-head tiebreaker and occupy the all important second seed, which includes a bye in the first round of the playoffs. The Broncos are still within striking distance of the Houston Texans and the first seed, as well, so it's important that Denver stays healthy through the end of the season.
