The Denver Broncos have a must-win game against the Arizona Cardinals this week. Unfortunately for Broncos head coach Vance Joseph, the team will be without a variety of contributors on both sides of the football, including Jared Veldheer (tackle) and Ronald Leary (guard) up front.
With Veldheer and Leary both out of the picture, Max Garcia will likely start at left guard this week, after starting at right guard against the Rams. Billy Turner would once again be the logical choice to fill in at right tackle. Rookie guard Sam Jones will also be on the gameday roster for the first time in his young career.
The Broncos will also be without outside linebacker Shane Ray, cornerback Adam Jones and safety Dymonte Thomas on defense.
Broncos CB Adam Jones (thigh), RT Jared Veldheer (knee), RG Ron Leary (Achilles), OLB Shane Ray (ankle) and S Dymonte Thomas (chest) did not practice Wednesday and are OUT for Thursday night's game at Arizona.
