Perhaps the biggest news among the pregame inactives is the absence of Jaguars defensive tackle John Henderson, who will sit out the game after suffering a blow to the head in the Jaguars’ Week 2 win over Atlanta. Henderson had been listed as doubtful throughout the week and did not practice Friday.
Rob Meier will replace Henderson in Jacksonville’s starting XI.
For the Broncos, defensive end Tim Crowder will have to wait another week to make his Denver debut, as he is inactive for a third consecutive game. An ankle sprain kept him out for the last two weeks.
Joining Crowder on the game-day inactive list are safety Hamza Abdullah (hip), running back Andre Hall, guard Ben Hamilton (concussion), tackle Ryan Harris (back), tight end Stephen Alexander, wide receiver Brian Clark and defensive tackle Antwon Burton.
Linebacker Jamie Winborn is in uniform and will make his Broncos debut today after being inactive last week.
Joining Henderson among the Jaguars’ inactives are kicker Josh Scobee, running back LaBrandon Toefield, linebacker Clint Ingram, center Brad Meester, tackle Richard Collier and defensive end Kenny Petway. Wide receiver Matt Jones joins them as the Jaguars’ third quarterback, meaning that he cannot line up at wideout today. Jones was a quarterback at Arkansas before becoming the Jags’ first-round pick in 2005.
More to follow throughout the day …
