Injury Report: Champ, Duke questionable; Carter probable

Starting strong safety Duke Ihenacho made a limited return to practice on Friday, and along with Champ Bailey and Joel Dreessen has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the visiting Eagles.

It's expected that Ihenacho will play.

Tony Carter was upgraded to a full participant and is probable, while Paris Lenon is doubtful after not having practiced all week. The nine Broncos who were listed on the injury report but practiced all week have all been declared probable.

For the Eagles, S Patrick Chung was again held out and is doubtful for Sunday, meaning fifth-round rookie Earl Wolff figures to start in his place. Left tackle Jason Peters is probable.

Unsurprisingly, Wesley Woodyard was not fined for the hit which concussed Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor.

Champ Bailey spoke about the 2004 Broncos/Falcons game during which Michael Vick wrecked Denver nearly singlehandedly.

In his preview of the game for PFF, John Castellane notes the exceptional play of Denver's linebackers against the run.

Jeff McLane says it's a very real possibility the Eagles have a completely new starting secondary in 2014, which portends bad things for Philly's chances against PMFM.

Ben Muth loves how the Eagles run the ball under Chip Kelly, and how their scheme forced KC's linebackers to react a bit slowly last week.

McLane and Zach Berman each predict Denver victories in a Sunday shootout.

Allowing 431 yards to Philly, as the Chiefs did last week, apparently qualifies as limiting them in Jeff Legwold's book.


Andy Benoit, Burke/Farrar, and Robert Mays preview Week 4.

Bill Simmons is taking the Broncos and laying the points (11.5 of them), which suggests we're in for a close one. Meanwhile, his readers suggest Manning may be going for a 666 season: 600 points, 6,000 yards, and 60 touchdown passes. Would be nice...

Chris Burke calls Wes Welker the year's best free-agent acquisition so far, and he notes Elvis Dumervil's fine play even while the folks at Dove Valley want us to focus solely on his sack numbers.

Judy Battista discusses whether the Chiefs have a chance of hanging with the Broncos in the AFCW this season.
