The No. 1 AFC seed Denver Broncos are set to host the No. 4 seed Baltimore Ravens on Saturday afternoon. The Broncos are coming off a bye week, earned for having one of the two top seeds in the AFC, while the Ravens are coming off a win over the Indianapolis Colts at home. The winner of this game will either face the Patriots or Texans in AFC Championship Game, depending on who wins the AFC's other Divisional round game.
The Broncos are fairly healthy coming into their first playoff game of the season, with an exception of cornerback Tracy Porter, who was held out of practice again on Thursday due to a concussion. His game status has not yet been decided, though. All other Broncos practiced fully on Thursday.
The Ravens had three players sit out during practice on Wednesday, but on Thursday, two of those three players returned. The only player who sat out on Thursday was tackle Jah Reid, as both fullback Vonta Leach and running back Bernard Pierce returned, although they were limited. Most players practiced fully for the Broncos, and the only new name on the report was wide receiver Torrey Smith, who was limited due to a back injury.
