On Friday, the Denver Broncos put in their final touches on game preparation ahead of Sunday’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. They’ll be without one of their key defensive and special teams players against Minnesota on primetime.

Denver Broncos final injury report vs. Minnesota Vikings

The final injury report for the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings was released following practice on Friday at the Centura Training Center. Minnesota will have several players questionable for Sunday’s game, but the Broncos will be relatively healthy.

Broncos offensive lineman Ben Powers expects to play on Sunday

After suffering a foot injury in Monday’s big win against the Buffalo Bills, offensive guard Ben Powers returned to practice on Friday in a limited capacity.

Powers initially missed Thursday’s practice but made his way back to the field on Friday afternoon. Safety P.J. Locke, however, did not return to practice on Friday and has already been ruled out of Sunday’s game.

Veteran safety Kareem Jackson will get the start next to Justin Simmons on Sunday in place of Locke, who took over after Jackson’s suspension.

Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy popped up on Thursday’s injury report with a hip designation that limited him, but he was upgraded to a full participant on Friday and will play on Sunday.

Baron Browning, Ronnie Perkins, and Marvin Mims were full participants for two consecutive days on Friday, and they will play as well. However, offensive tackle Garett Bolles and running back Samaje Perine each popped up on Friday’s report with an ankle designation that kept them limited, but they are also expected to play on Sunday.


  • Baron Browning (wrist/knee) was a full participant.
  • Marvin Mims (ankle) was a full participant.
  • Ronnie Perkins (quad) was a full participant.
  • Jerry Jeudy (hip) was a full participant.


  • Garett Bolles (ankle) was limited on Friday.
  • Samaje Perine (ankle) was limited on Friday.
