The Broncos are full steam ahead with few injury concerns in preparation for the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Denver released its Thursday injury report, which is almost identical to what we've seen throughout the week. Rotational defensive tackle Sione Fua was the only player to miss practice as he continues to recover from a calf injury that has been an issue for much of the week.

The more important news is the continued participation of Knowshon Moreno, who seems assured to start barring an unexpected setback. Denver's running back is key to balancing the team's offense. It was unclear whether he'd be certain to start after a rib injury reared its head last week, but it's cleared up and, paired with a healthy defense, ensures there's nothing that will keep the Broncos from being at their best.
