Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing/dressing, cranberry sauce/jelly and all the fixings weren’t enough to get everyone healthy in time for Week 12’s matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos.
An important AFC matchup for both teams, given tiebreakers and current playoff seeding, the Browns vs Broncos injury reports were vastly different all week. Cleveland had a slew of players missing practice or limited while Denver was far more healthy.
The final injury report is much smaller, overall, than the initial this week with a couple of players ruled out and others questionable for the game Sunday:
Browns Injury Report
- WR Marquise Goodwin - Concussion - Out
- S Juan Thornhill - Calf - Questionable
- LB Anthony Walker - Hamstring - Questionable
- CB Denzel Ward - Shoulder - Out
- LB Jordan Kunaszyk - Knee - Questionable
Kunaszyk has been designated for return from IR this week.
Walker returned to practice on Friday while Thornhill (two) and Kunaszyk (all three) were able to participate some multiple times this week.
Broncos Injury Report
- S PJ Locke - Ankle - Questionable
- RB Dwayne Washington - Illness - Questionable
After not participating on Wednesday, Locke was a full participant by Friday. Washington popped up on the injury report with his illness Friday but has some time to get healthy in order to play.
How concerned are you about the defense starting to see injury issues in the last few weeks?
