The Denver Broncos will more than likely be without their top tight end when they battle the Kansas City Chiefs in a Sunday night AFC West showdown. Julius Thomas is listed as "questionable" on the team's official injury report.
Thomas is still nursing an ankle injury he suffered in the team's Week 11 loss to St. Louis Rams. He did practice on a limited basis this week, but was not running pass routes. When asked about Thomas' chances to play against the Chiefs head coach John Fox told reporters "We're just day to day."
The playing status of cornerback Aqib Talib also appeared in doubt earlier this week, but after being listed as "questionable" this week with a hamstring injury Talib returned to practice Friday. Talib was limited in last Sunday's game against Miami and missed the first couple of days of practice, but it appears he will give it a go against the Chiefs.
Linebacker Brandon Marshall's chances of playing have also improved. He's listed as "probable" on the team's injury report. Barring a setback, Marshall is expected to start. He suffered a concussion against Miami last Sunday.
