The Denver Broncos might be thin at inside linebacker when they face the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football in Week 1.
Broncos linebacker Jonas Griffith (elbow) did fully practice again on Friday, which is the good news. The bad news is Josey Jewell (calf) was held out of practice, giving him an uncertain status for Monday.
If Jewell is not able to play on Monday, Alex Singleton would be the most likely candidate to start in his place.
Elsewhere on the injury front, outside linebacker Randy Gregory (shoulder/knee), right tackle Billy Turner (knee/hip) and wide receiver KJ Hamler (knee/hip) were limited
