INJURY REPORT

The banged up Denver Broncos finally get some good injury news

Oct 17, 2022, 1:34 PM

The Denver Broncos are starting to get healthier, with three notable names being activated ahead of their Week 6 matchup in Los Angeles on Monday Night Football.

Safety Justin Simmons is back after being injured in Week 1 against the Seahawks, where the former Pro Bowler toughed out the injury. He was placed on IR after the game with a quadriceps injury that is now healed up enough to go.

Greg Dulcich could be a huge boost to the Broncos offense, which has struggled, especially at the tight end spot. The rookie was taken in the third round out of UCLA in this spring’s draft. He was one of the better tight ends in the country as a Bruin.

Michael Ojemudia also comes back just at the right time as fellow cornerback Ronald Darby is done for the season. Ojemudia has started 12 games since being taken in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Meanwhile, Denver also elevated safety Anthony Harris from the practice squad to the active roster; he played a bunch on special teams in Week 5. Denver also boosted long snapper Mitchell Fraboni to active, with Jacob Bobenmoyer going on injured reserve.
