The vision that Johns Elway and Fox have had for the 2014 Denver Broncos, with the mix of old and new faces, is finally being realized. Other than kicker, Matt Prater, who is serving the last game of his 4-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse program, the Broncos are whole and healthy, from the top to the bottom of their roster.

The biggest news coming out this week is that weakside linebacker, and defensive leader, Danny Trevathan, has returned from his leg injury and will start this Sunday vs the Arizona Cardinals. The man who led the team in tackles last season, and who happens to wear the green dot on his helmet, which signifies the communication device inside, has missed the last 3 games. And his absence can't be overestimated. Here is the Broncos mid-week injury report for week 5.

Did Not Participate

S David Bruton (ankle).

Limited Practice Participation

LB Lerentee McCray (knee).

Full Practice Participation

S Quinton Carter (knee), TE Virgil Green (concussion), K Brandon McManus (groin), LB Danny Trevathan (knee), G Louis Vasquez (rib cage).

Overall, the Broncos are in great shape health-wise. This is timely, because they still have 3 NFC West teams left on the schedule, starting with Arizona this week. It'll be exciting for Broncos Country to see Trevathan back out on the grass. The only question is what will the team do with Brandon Marshall, who has filled in for Trevathan admirably, leading the team with 30 tackles? Sunday's matchup could provide the answer.
