Neither Travis Henry nor John Lynch will be in uniform today, as both were deactivated by the Broncos this morning.
Lynch had been limited in practice throughout the week, while Henry sat out the practices on Wednesday and Thursday before being in uniform on Friday. Both were considered game-time decisions heading into the morning.
Hamza Abdullah, who played a majority of the snaps last week at Detroit, is expected to start for Lynch, while Selvin Young is scheduled to open at tailback in Henry’s stead.
Joining Lynch and Henry on the inactive list are running back/fullback Mike Bell, offensive lineman Isaac Snell, defensive ends Larry Birdine and Paul Carrington and wide receiver Javon Walker. Quarterback Darrell Hackney is the Broncos’ other inactive player, but he is in uniform per the NFL’s rules regarding third quarterbacks.
Birdine and Carrington had both been signed to the 53-man roster on Tuesday. Defensive lineman Josh Mallard and wide receiver Taylor Jacobs also joined the club that day amidst a flurry of roster moves, but they are active and in uniform for today’s game.
