2012 AFC Wild Card: Broncos Inactives Vs. Steelers

The Denver Broncos are hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday as they try to pull off a major upset and continue their stunning run of success, but huge questions continue to surround their quarterbacking situation. The Broncos will once again go with incumbent starter Tim Tebow against the Steelers as they try to right the ship, but it's been reported that Denver will turn to back-up Brady Quinn in certain situations if Tebow continues to struggle with his decision-making.

The quarterback situation is the big thing to focus on for Denver today, although the Broncos will also be missing a few players, as well. Starting safety Brian Dawkins is missing the game with his continuing neck issues, and he's the biggest player out for Denver. The full injury report for the Broncos can be found here, but it's shown below:

- S Brian Dawkins

- RB Austin Sylvester

- FB Spencer Larsen

- LB Mike Mohamed

- OT Ryan Harris

- TE Julius Thomas

- DE Derrick Harvey

Dawkins is really the big name missing for Denver. Other key players listed on the Broncos' injury report this week, such as linebacker Von Miller, wide receiver Eddie Royal and safety David Bruton, are all active and expected to play.
