Open Thread: Sunday Week 5

Here are the day's inactive lists. Denver will be without QB Caleb Hanie, C/G C.J. Davis, DT Sealver Siliga, LB Steven Johnson, S Duke Ihenacho, TE Julius Thomas, and RB Knowshon Moreno.

Thomas is kicked back off the 45-man by the return of Virgil Green from suspension, Johnson by the return of Joe Mays, and Chris Kuper will make his season debut. Brock Osweiler is the primary backup QB yet again, while Ronnie Hillman, whose role has expanded each week, keeps Moreno inactive.

As expected, the Patriots will be without TE Aaron Hernandez today; also inactive are LB Dont'a Hightower, WR Julian Edelman, S Steve Gregory, C Matt Tennant, TE Michael Hoomanawanui, and DE Jake Bequette. Hightower's absence is a significant one, and a mild surprise; Tracy White is listed as his backup.

Enjoy the games, and Go Broncos!
