Although he was listed as questionable and had “limited” participation in Friday’s practice, running back Travis Henry is up on the 45-man active roster for the Broncos in their game with the Chargers today.
The only member of the six-man group of running backs and fullbacks to be inactive is Mike Bell, who did practice this week but is still recovering from a concussion.
As expected, safety Hamza Abdullah and wide receiver Javon Walker are scratched; both were ruled out in the days leading up to the game.
In an example of dramatic irony — or mere coincidence — the man self-nicknamed “Hot 97,” defensive end Simeon Rice, is among the eight inactives on this cool early autmnn afternoon. Defensive tackle Antwon Burton joins him on the inactive list; both played extensively in last week’s loss to Indianapolis.
Rounding out the inactives for the game are safety Steve Cargile, offensive tackle Ryan Harris and tight end Stephen Alexander.
The moves mean that wide receiver Brian Clark will make his 2007 debut; he was inactive in Weeks 1-3 and was not on the roster last week, as he was waived the day before the loss to the Colts.
All the while, players begin gathering on the field, with the public-address system stepping back into the early 1990s by blasting the Stereo MC’s Step It Up. Both these teams need to do just that today.
