Neither Javon Walker nor John Lynch will play for the Broncos today.
Both were listed among the Broncos’ eight game-day inactives, which were announced before the balance of the team took the field for warmups in the RCA Dome.
Joining Walker and Lynch in sweats will be safety Hamza Abdullah and running back/fullback Mike Bell — each of whom was ruled out during the week — and four others: offensive tackle Ryan Harris, tight end Stephen Alexander and defensive tackles Amon Gordon and Sam Adams.
Both Gordon and Adams had practiced throughout the week, with Adams only missing Wednesday’s session, as has been the normal throughout the season. They were listed as the first-team tackles, with Alvin McKinley and Marcus Thomas shown as the backups. Should Thomas open the game on the field, it would mark the first NFL start for the rookie.
The moves also mean that running back Andre Hall and defensive end Tim Crowder will make their NFL debuts, while wide receiver Glenn Martinez — promoted to the 53-man roster on Saturday from the practice squad — will make his Broncos debut.
