Denver Broncos injury report: As expected, safety Brian Dawkins has officially been ruled out of Sunday’s playoff contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fullback Spencer Larsen is doubtful. Safety David Bruton and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite are questionable, while wide receiver Eddie Royal and linebacker Von Miller are probable.
The loss (and presumed loss) of Dawkins and Larsen are hard to qualify. The Broncos defense played very well last week, but it hasn’t been the same without its leader on the field. And no run-first team is going to be as effective without its lead blocker.
We’ll have the Steelers’ injury report when it becomes available.
