Denver Broncos gameday inactives vs. Minnesota Vikings

Heading into tonight’s primetime showdown between the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings, Denver enters tonight’s matchup with only one player out on the injury report.

On Friday, the Broncos ruled out safety P.J. Locke, who suffered an ankle injury during the team’s conference victory over the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.

Earlier in the week, the Broncos had several players pop up on the injury report, including left guard Ben Powers (foot), wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (hip), and others like Marvin Mims, Baron Browning, and Ronnie Perkins.

Everybody is expected to play and be available tonight, including Powers, as they take on a tough Vikings front seven.

The Vikings will not have star wide receiver Justin Jefferson available tonight after they did not active him off of injured reserve.
