Kuper doubtful with ankle, migraine problems

Broncos starting right guard Chris Kuper again missed practice Friday and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Cleveland; it would be the third consecutive game he's missed due to injury, and the ninth in total.

According to John Fox, Kuper continues to be hindered by scar tissue in his surgically-repaired ankle, and is also dealing with migraine problems. Manny Ramirez will again start in his place; Peyton Manning has taken just two sacks with Kuper in the lineup, but 19 with Ramirez starting.

FB Chris Gronkowski is questionable, while ten others are probable for Sunday.

For Cleveland, WR Mohamed Massaquoi, TE Jordan Cameron, and S Tashaun Gipson have all been ruled out and will not make the trip to Denver.

Gipson had been slated to start in place of T.J. Ward, but was knocked out by a foot injury suffered during Thursday's practice. Ward, the Browns' highest graded defender, was placed on IR earlier in the week.

The loss of Ward and Gipson has Cleveland reaching further and further down the depth chart by the day. Eric Hagg, who has played just 224 snaps this season, will be the free safety; Usama Young will start at strong safety.
