The Thursday injury report for the Denver Broncos has been released and there's some good news on it, as play-making wide receiver Eddie Royal went from missing practice Wednesday to being limited today. According to the SB Nation blog Mile High Report, being limited means there's a less than 100-percent chance that Royal will see the field Sunday, but the progress is promising.
However, veteran safety Brian Dawkins missed practiced for the second straight day. It is becoming more unlikely that Dawkins will be able to play for the Broncos, who host the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday (2:30 p.m. MT on CBS) in the Wild-Card round of the 2012 NFL Playoffs.
Denver's full injury report is listed below:
- LB Von Miller
- S David Bruton
- WR Eddie Royal
Did Not Participate
- FB Spencer Larsen
- S Brian Dawkins
- CB Johnathan Wilhite
