As expected, Trevor Siemian will suit up against the San Diego Chargers on Thursday night. In fact, the Broncos are getting a handful of players back.
After missing this past Sunday, Siemian is set to make his return from a left shoulder injury. Starting tight end Virgil Green is active as well.
To no surprise, outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is still not back, headlining the inactives for the Broncos. Ware joins third-string quarterback Austin Davis as the top names not in uniform for Denver, along with cornerback Lorenzo Doss, tight end Jeff Heuerman, guard Connor McGovern, tackle Ty Sambrailo and safety Justin Simmons.
The Chargers aren’t exactly at full strength, either. Obviously, Jason Verrett was the latest loss this week; the cornerback is heading to injured reserve, which puts his season at an end.
San Diego’s secondary is even more beat up than that though, with corners Brandon Flowers and Pierre Desir inactive on Thursday as well with injuries. Safety Jahleel Addae is also down, as are tackle Tyreek Burwell, tight end Asante Cleveland, defensive end Darius Philon and center Max Tuerk.
