Selvin Young

Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons – Injury Report – Week 11 Wednesday Practice

First, the good news: tight end Tony Scheffler practiced fully on Wednesday, making it very likely that he’ll play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Scheffler returned for the first time this past Thursday after suffering a groin injury before the bye; he was noticeably hindered by his injury as the game went on, but that didn’t stop him from catching four balls for 92 yards.

Now the bad: Champ Bailey said he was going to try to play this weekend, but that possibility took a turn for the worse after the Pro Bowler didn’t participate in practice on Wednesday. It’s still possibly Bailey will see the field, but he’ll have to put in more practice in the next two days to make it happen.

Meanwhile, RB Selvin Young missed practice Wednesday. Both he and Scheffler fought through their injuries to play against the Browns, but Young looked far less ready. I’d be surprised to see him suit up Sunday.

Meanwhile, our friend Jason Elam sat out of practice as well with a hip. Not sure what that’s about, but something tells me he’ll be just fine.

We’re the most injured team in the league, but we’re not letting that stop us. Missing Champ and Selvin hurts, but the Broncos can still get it done. Injury report from both teams after the jump.

    Just checking around NFL rumor sites, and apparently we could have had Michael Bennett from Tampa however the Chargers also put a claim on him and thus because of they’re crap record they got him. Its funny how they’ve done this just to avoid him coming to Denver…. Bolts jealously is a female trait, you bitches are going to get it handed to you on Sunday @ Pittsburg.

    *their, I should really proof read in advance and not afterwards

    I wont have a problem with this game so long as we stop Micheal Tunner. i hope Spencer Larson goes to LB cause Nikko was horrible against Cleveland.

    I am look for Moss, Elvis and Ekuban to bring it keep Ryan on his back and the pics will come.

    unlike kerry, i actually think that selvin not practicing is a really bad thing. it means that we have to rely on hillis (who i am high on) and a couple of unknowns and a klepto that we fired a couple of years ago.

    not how i want to go in with facing a pretty good defense on the road.

    flbronc i agree with you, and i believe Mr. Hillis will be very effective. but i’m very optimistic to what pj pope may bring to the table. If he plays with alot of heart i think we’ll be straight.

    Tatum will have his shot as well but “ahh” the guys a real klepto.
