This Sunday night, the (4-1) Denver Broncos will host the (4-2) San Francisco 49ers. Both teams are missing key players and each roster is replete with nagging injuries. For the 'Niners, it looks like inside linebacker, Patrick Willis, is unlikely to suit up in week 7.
In their secondary, they're banged up too. Rookie defensive back, Jimmie Ward (quad) and cornerback, Tramaine Brock (toe), are both battling the injury bug. That doesn't make it any easier on a defense faced with the challenge of playing against Peyton Manning and his aerial attack. As for the Broncos mid-week injury report, let's take a look.
