As snow flurries fell upon Dove Valley throughout the Broncos’ 90-minute practice on Friday, running back Selvin Young saw his first on-field of the week after suffering a knee strain against the Tennessee Titans.
But Young’s work was limited, as was the case for fullback Paul Smith, who also returned to the field after missing the previous two days, leaving both questionable for Sunday’s game in Chicago.
“We’ll get a chance to work them out before the game and we’ll see where we’re at there,” Head Coach Mike Shanahan said.
There is no such uncertainty regarding running back Travis Henry, who missed Friday’s practice and was ruled out for Sunday’s game.
“Travis is definitely out,” Shanahan said.
Henry has been in recovery from a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament, but on Friday a touch of the flu was added to his list of infirmities.
“I think he’ll be able to go again next week,” Shanahan said.
Wide receiver Javon Walker practiced Friday, but was limited for the first time this week. Even though there was some swelling in the surgically repaired right knee following the Thursday practice, he expects to play Sunday, although his status is questionable.
“Unless there’s any setback there, he should be able to play,” Shanahan said.
