Once again, nine Broncos are listed on the injury report but were full participants, while for the Eagles, Jason Peters was a full participant, and Patrick Chung did not practice.

Report: Browns shopping wideouts, but not Joe Thomas

According to Mike Silver, the Browns have turned away several calls about the potential availability of left tackle Joe Thomas via trade.

Rumors of a Browns fire sale, coupled with the season-ending injury to Denver LT Ryan Clady, had led some to speculate that the Broncos might call about Thomas.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, Broncos All-Pro linebacker Von Miller attempted to cheat the NFL's drug testing system with the help of a starstruck urine collector.

Injury Report: Phillips questionable with back spasms

There's a chance the Broncos will get back one key defender Monday, in Champ Bailey. But Champ's possible return could be offset some by the potential absence of Shaun Phillips, who missed practice Saturday due to back spasms.

Bailey, Phillips, and Joel Dreessen are listed as questionable on Denver's final injury report for the week, while eight others are probable.

Injury Report: Bailey, Dreessen make limited return

It doesn't quite make up for the loss of Ryan Clady for the season, but Denver received welcome news with Thursday's limited return to practice by Champ Bailey (foot) and Joel Dreessen (knee).

Duke Ihenacho (shoulder) was also limited, although he's said he fully expects to play on Monday night against Oakland. Six other Broncos are listed on the injury report but were full participants Thursday.

Browns deal Richardson to Colts, plan to sign McGahee

In a stunning move, the Browns have sent running back Trent Richardson to Indianapolis in exchange for a first-round pick next year.

Cleveland selected Richardson third overall in 2012, when the team was owned by Randy Lerner and led by Mike Holmgren, Tom Heckert, and Pat Shurmur.

Broncos announce signing of Winston Justice

As expected, the Broncos have signed Winston Justice (6-6, 317) to take the roster spot of All-Pro Ryan Clady, who was placed on season-ending IR.

Justice, whom Denver hosted for a workout on Tuesday, was a second-round pick by the Eagles in 2006, and in seven NFL seasons has started 43 of the 59 games in which he's played.

Holliday named AFC Special Teams POW

For the second time in as many weeks, a Broncos player has been recognized with an AFC award. Trindon Holliday, who essentially sealed Sunday's victory over the Giants with an 81-yard punt-return score, is the AFC Special Teams POW for Week 2.

Ryan Clady is gone for the year

We expected this was coming, but now the Denver Post has confirmed: Ryan Clady's 2013 season is over.

Per Mike Klis:

The Broncos' all-pro left tackle will have season-ending surgery on his injured left foot, according to an NFL source. 

Also according to Klis, the Broncos will sign tackle Winston Justice, who played several seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before starting for the Indianapolis Colts last year.  Justice is a former 2nd-round pick who still has enough athleticism to be a swing tackle and plug a gap should either Chris Clark or Orlando Franklin ever go down. 

We'll have more reaction from the IAOFM crew later in the day.

Report: Clady expected to miss time with Lisfranc injury

According to the Denver Post, Clady's injury is serious enough to possibly threaten his availability for the rest of the season.
