The first full Friday practice of the 2016 regular season is over. Today’s Injury Report supplied by the Denver Broncos has Wide Receiver Bennie Fowler listed as OUT for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The other notable listings from the Report are Wide Receiver Demaryius Thomas and Defensive Lineman Derek Wolfe. From what I witnessed today, Thomas and Wolfe moved well and did not seem to be bothered by their current aches.
Both veterans are deemed QUESTIONABLE. In other words, they will have to convince Head Coach Gary Kubiak Sunday that will be ready to play 4 quarters, “That’s what I ask everybody on the team, just look me in the eye on the morning of the game and tell me if you can do it or not. You just trust that if they say they can play, that they are going to be there for you all day.”
Wolfe appreciates a coach who trusts a player’s honesty, “I think guys like me and ‘DT’ (Demaryius Thomas) have earned that, as far as our work ethic and our toughness. If we can play, then we’re going to play. If we can’t, we’re going to tell him we can’t. I got a lot of respect for him and he’s got a lot of respect for us.”
