Injury Report: Mathews, Royal, Clary held out

Derek Wolfe has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game, while the nine other Broncos listed on the injury report this week are probable.

The Chargers' injury situation is quite a bit murkier, although center Nick Hardwick did return to practice Friday after having been cleared from the concussion he suffered on Sunday.

Hardwick and five other Chargers are listed as questionable.

Ryan Mathews and Eddie Royal again missed practice and have yet to suit up this week, casting some doubt upon whether they'll play.

San Diego will hold a light practice on Saturday, so it's possible they participate then. In recent weeks, Mathews and Royal had been held out of Wednesday and Thursday practices, but practiced on Fridays before suiting up each Sunday.

Guard Jeromey Clary was held out for the second straight day; if he's unable to go, the Chargers figure to shuffle their line a bit.
