Running back Ryan Mathews is inactive for the San Diego Chargers’ game against the Denver Broncos.
There weren’t many surprises when the Denver Broncos injury report was released on Friday afternoon. Montee Ball will continue to sit, along with two teammates, while high-flying tight end Julius Thomas should be able to play.
For the Denver Broncos this week, it’s win and they’ve won the AFC West. The San Diego Chargers know this is a must-win game for them, as it would keep their playoff and even division-winning hopes alive.
When the Broncos review film of Sunday’s playoff win over the Chargers, Eric Decker might be seen cringing a few times in the film room.
Nate Irving knows he’s no Von Miller. Still, he’s relishing the chance to serve as his stand-in for the Broncos’ playoff run now that Denver’s star is awaiting surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right knee.
