Brandon Marshall ran a bit Tuesday on that hammy, not ready yet. Will likely be end of week decision on his availability.

#Broncos Kubiak said it has reached point where they'd prefer #KCChiefs Hill not touch the ball "he's a beast right now" @DenverChannel

T.J. Ward is in the concussion protocol. Had symptoms that showed up. Would be a huge loss if he can't go Sunday.

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 20m20 minutes ago

Kubiak said C.J. Anderson is on course to be ready to play in February. Unlikely he'll be back this year. Won't return to practice in season

I'm doing all my planning right now to make sure I'm in Florida by 8:00 PM ET so I can watch the game. Nashville TN on Saturday night - hopefully Florida by game time.

My mother-in-law is going to be pi$$ed that I want to watch the game on Christmas night. Father-in-law will be just fine with it.

A reporter asked Talib if he should chill a bit with arguing with everybody. Talib: "Is that what you think? My check don't say that."

Aqib Talib: "It wasn't even like an argument. I don't know who did it, Mike Silver, I don't know who did it. But they made too much of it."

Let's be honest. When Talib gets all super excited, he's almost unintelligible, so maybe he was just praising Okung.

This really is coaching negligence. Four fumbles in four weeks and Kubiak "has confidence in him" and is just going to trot him out there again.

It'd be one thing if he possessed such a massive upside that you sort of had to live with the downside... But he doesn't. He's an average journeyman who was back there solely because he provided some consistency last year. I think negligence is the right word.

Yeah as really the coaching should had caught that. And really the journeyman thing is not as effective as it used to be. And the blow up with the team in the loss to the Pats and in home. No excuse.

I BELIEVE we will win. I HOPE we will win. I will not be at all surprised if we **** it up, Norwood fumbles it away, and we're officially eliminated from playoff contention. I know we CAN still make the playoffs, but this squad has made me pessimistic, and I honestly think that even if we win out we still won't get in. ******* Norwood. I wish I could text Kubiak and ask him what in the hell he's thinking.

Kubiak's decision making has been a big disappointment. Should we be surprised? I get Kubiak is a BRONCO at heart and fans feel they should be loyal to him, but going 2-4 in the last six games is an example of shitting the bed. I'm not confident the BRONCOS will win their last 2 games.

The only defense i can give kubiak is that losing to chiefs raiders and pats are 3 of 4 beat teams in league. Chiefs was winable one too.

If Derby or Green don't practice tmrw, Broncos probably call a practice squad TE up. Krieger-Coble maybe. Gotta make a roster move though.

Brutal - TJ Ward is a huge loss going against Kelce, who ate our lunch last month. And we basically have nobody to play TE, which was already a problem for our offense.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, the Denver Broncos will be without four players who have started games for the team this season when they visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.

Safety T.J. Ward (concussion), tight end A.J. Derby (concussion), tight end Virgil Green (concussion) and linebacker Brandon Marshall (hamstring) were ruled out of the Christmas night game against Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium. At 8-6, the Broncos likely have to win both of their remaining games to stay alive in the AFC playoff race.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said after Friday's practice that defensive end Derek Wolfe (neck) is formally listed as questionable. Wolfe left last Sunday's game in the second quarter and has also missed the past two days of practice with an illness.

"[I'm] hopeful,'' Kubiak said about Wolfe. "He got sick on us [Thursday], tried to come in [Friday], ended up sending him to the doctor. We'll see. We've got a lot of time on our hands since we don't play until Sunday night.''

Green, Derby and Ward are all in the concussion protocol. None of the three participated in practice this week.

With Derby and Green out, the Broncos might be forced to make a roster move given Jeff Heuerman is the only healthy tight end on the 53-man roster. The Broncos do have three tight ends on the practice squad, or they could simply use an extra lineman, like Ty Sambrailo, as a tight end in some run-game looks.

And if the Broncos decide Marshall, who hasn't practiced since he reinjured his hamstring Dec. 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, isn't expected to return to practice soon, he could be moved to injured reserve if the Broncos promote a tight end from the practice squad.

"Obviously with those guys and some things going, it's something we'll have to take a look at it,'' Kubiak said.

At safety, the Broncos do have some options, but Ward is their leading tackler this season (87) and plays in every personnel grouping the team has on defense.

The Broncos could play cornerback Bradley Roby at safety in some of their base defense looks, and rookie safeties Will Parks and Justin Simmons have played in some of the team's specialty packages.

I'm not angry!!!!!!!

I knew they needed a TE, but cutting a QB, even the 3rd stringer, instead of one of these useless ******* WR's is stupid. Even more stupid was cutting the only backup NT they had.

Btw, they make matters even worse by calling up another WR instead of a TE.
