The Denver Broncos (8-5) invite the New England Patriots (10-3) this Sunday, looking to expand their winning streak to 7 games. The Broncos have several key players on the mend, and Thursday's injury report looks good for Broncos fans:
Did Not Practice
S David Bruton (achilles)
S Brian Dawkins (neck)
CB Andre Goodman (concussion)
FB Spencer Larsen (hamstring)
LB Von Miller (thumb)
WR Eddie Royal (concussion)
Von Miller currently leads the team with 11.5 sacks and appears to be a strong candidate for the 2011 Defensive Rookie of the Year. Though he has struggled with injuries much of the season, Miller has only missed one game, the Bronco's Week 13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
The Broncos secondary also continues to mend: Starting strong safety Brian Dawkins has not missed any games yet this season despite being listed on the injury report most every week. Meanwhile, starting CB Andre Goodman, who has likewise played every game this year, has two interceptions and a pick six in the 2011 season.
