Denver Broncos Inactives, Week 17: Brian Dawkins To Miss Regular Season Finale

The Denver Broncos are facing the Kansas City Chiefs with the chance to clinch the AFC West division title on Sunday, but they'll be without veteran safety Brian Dawkins in their secondary. Dawkins has been battling neck issues all season long, leaving some in the game to speculate that this may be his last season in the NFL.

Dawkins is one of seven players that won't be suiting up for Denver on Sunday. That list can be found here on the Broncos' official Twitter feed, but it's shown below:

- S Brian Dawkins

- RB Austin Sylvester

- LB Mike Mohamed

- OG Manny Ramirez

- OT Tony Hills

- TE Julius Thomas

- DE Derrick Harvey

Dawkins, 38, is the most notable absence today for the Broncos. David Bruton will be starting in his place.
