Denver Broncos vs. Houston Texans injury report: Friday

The Denver Broncos have ruled a couple of players out for the game this weekend against the Houston Texans. Guard Quinn Meinerz was expected, but wide receiver KJ Hamler not so much. While he was a surprise to see him come back from that brutal hip and knee injury in camp, he suddenly appeared on the injury report this week with hip/knee issues.

It would seem, in a report from James Palmer of NFL Network, that Hamler was having issues before last week’s game and played through the pain. It was also revealed that he expected to have pain issues in his knee and hip all throughout the season. That is a huge concern for Hamler and one I would hope the Broncos take extreme caution with. They appear to be doing that by ruling him out of this next game.

Meanwhile, inside linebacker Josey Jewell, edge rusher Randy Gregory, defensive lineman DeShawn Williams, cornerback K’Wuan Williams, and right tackle Billy Turner are all questionable this week. If I had to guess, I would say Jewell won’t quite be ready to go and Turner will dress, but not play, since it has already been reported that Cam Fleming would get the nod.

Here is your final practice participation report for both the Broncos and Texans.
