Don't expect to see much of the starters on Thursday night as the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals face off at Mile High. Both teams are just hoping to get through the end of preseason healthy after suffering big losses in August.
The Cardinals lost to the Chargers, 24-7, last week, but the biggest loss came along the offensive line. No. 7 overall pick Jonathan Cooper broke his leg and is possibly out for the season. It's a major blow to a line that was one of the worst in the league last season. Ryan Williams is starting at running back with Rashard Mendenhall nursing a knee sprain. He's reportedly on the trade block and this game may end up being an audition for other teams.
Broncos defensive lineman Derek Wolfe won't play, but he returned to practice this week and is on track for Week 1. This will be Von Miller's last game before starting his six game suspension. At running back, rookie Montee Ball led the team with 14 carries in last week's 27-26 win over the Rams. He could end up splitting time with Knowshon Moreno, with Ronnie Hillman struggling with ball security.
