Denver Broncos Final Injury Report

The following players have been listed as OUT for the Broncos on Sunday against the 49ers.

Cornerback Darius Phillips (hamstring) has not practiced all week and will be inactive.

Denver has 10 players who are QUESTIONABLE heading into Sunday’s game.

Wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland (hamstring) is questionable after not participating in Friday’s practice. He suffered the injury during Thursday’s practice at the UCHealth Training Center. If Cleveland can’t go, that will put the Broncos in a bind on special teams and impacts their already thin depth at receiver.

Defensive linemen Dre’Mont Jones (neck) and Mike Purcell (elbow) are questionable for Sunday’s game leading up to kickoff. Jones coming off of a two-sack performance against the Houston Texans in Week 2 did not participate on Friday. Purcell was a full participant during Friday’s practice.

Outside linebacker Jonathan Cooper (hamstring) is also listed as questionable after encountering an injury during Thursday’s practice and did not participate on Friday.

Wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ribs) and KJ Hamler (knee/hip) are both considered questionable for Sunday’s game according to Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett.

Jeudy returned to practice for the first time this week on Friday and was limited while Hamler was a full participant and is expected to play barring any setbacks.

Starting inside linebacker Josey Jewell (calf) is listed as questionable against the 49ers. Jewell has missed the first two weeks of the Broncos regular season but appears to be trending upwards.

Offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz (hamstring) and Billy Turner (knee) enter Sunday Night Football as questionable with their injuries respectively. Meinerz was a limited participant on Thursday and Friday while Turner was a full participant on Wednesday and limited on both Thursday and Friday.

Star cornerback Patrick Surtain (shoulder) was a full participant on Friday and is considered questionable for Sunday.

The Denver Broncos will kick off action against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football at 6:20 p.m. MT at Empower Field at Mile High.
