Andre Caldwell will not dress against the Falcons, with Demaryius Thomas, Matthew Willis, Eric Decker and Brandon Stokely taking the field as the only receivers for Peyton Manning. The Broncos dressed just four receivers in last week's win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Rookie running back Ronnie Hillman will also be inactive, as the team's fourth running back on the depth chart and not yet good enough in multiple phases of the game to warrant an active spot on the roster.
QB Caleb Hanie, CB Chris Harris, G Philip Blake, G Chris Kuper and DT Sealver Siliga are the other inactives for the game.
Rookie defensive lineman Malik Jackson will be making his NFL debut.
The inactives tonight for the Atlanta Falcons are: QB Drew Davis, S Charles Mitchell, CB Terrence Johnson, C Joe Hawley, OT Lamar Holmes, DE Jonathan Massaquoi and DE Cliff Matthews.
