Ahead of their Week 6 matchup with the 2-3 Tennessee Titans, there’s another questionable listing for Denver Broncos tackle Ja’Wuan James. James is still dealing with a sprained knee from Week 1. There was some optimism that he may play this week, but after a week of limited practices it doesn’t appear that he is back at 100%.
There is some positive news this week, however. Safety Kareem Jackson was a full participant Thursday and Friday, and is looking to build off a big game against the Los Angeles Chargers last week. Linebacker Josey Jewell was also a full participant Thursday and Friday and will play this week, but his role isn’t clear yet. When asked if Jewell would rotate in at linebacker, head coach Vic Fangio said “possibly.” Alexander Johnson started in Jewell’s place last week and was an instant spark-plug for the defense.
Along with James, safety Trey Marshall and Duke Dawson are both listed as questionable. Bryce Callahan will be out once again. With Callahan out, as well as De’Vante Bausby with his scary injury from last week, the Broncos will once again turn to Isaac Yiadom and Davontae Harris at corner. Newly signed Coty Sensabaugh could see time, as well.
The Titans will be without linebackers Sharif Finch (shoulder) and Cameron Wake (hamstring), both listed as out. Tight end Delanie Walker did not practice Wednesday, but came back as a full participant Thursday and Friday. Cornerback Chris Milton (calf) missed practice this week, but is listed as questionable.
