  • The Broncos will be without two starting cornerbacks in Ronald Darby and rookie sensation Pat Surtain II against the Chiefs on Saturday. That’s going to be a big blow to their chances of thwarting the Kansas City offense.

  • The Broncos haven’t formally activated K Brandon McManus or P Sam Martin from the Reserve/COVID-19 list, but they’re listing them both as questionable for the game on Saturday. Denver hosted P Colby Wadman for a visit on Thursday.

  • Shelby Harris and Nate Hairston are both questionable, but everyone else on the injury report seems to be in line to play on Saturday.
