Injury Update: Broncos first injury report against Lions drops, two names to watch……

The Denver Broncos’ initial injury report is out for their game against the Detroit Lions and there are two key names to keep an eye on.The team didn’t practice Tuesday, but since the game is Saturday night, the NFL is allowing them to estimate attendance.And a starting safety and an edge rusher were both assumed to be non-participants.

Nik Bonitto and PJ Locke each suffered injuries against the Chargers. Bonitto came off in the first half with a knee injury, took a trolley to the locker room and did not return. Head coach Sean Payton was cautious about his status. And Locke collided with cornerback Ja’Quan McMillian in the second half as they tried to defend a pass. Locke returned to the game, but his neck was visibly hurting.Offensive defenseman Quinn Meinerz should be ready to play elsewhere. He left the game with an irregular heartbeat and spent the night in a Los Angeles hospital as a precaution. Jonathan Cooper made a nice interception, but was tackled awkwardly. This is probably why he was rated “disabled” due to an ankle problem. Running back Samaje Perine entered the game questionably, but played and appears to have his knee issue behind him.The 7-6 Broncos are poised for a playoff spot, but they’ll face a high-powered offense in Detroit on Saturday night. It would be great to have Bonitto and Locke on the field, especially with Kareem Jackson still suspended for another game.
