Broncos healthier for Steelers this time
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos are back at practice, preparing for the one team that solved their league-best defense.
The only two players who were absent from Monday’s practice were safety Darian Stewart (hamstring) and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. (shoulder).
Denver (12-4) hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-6) on Sunday in the AFC divisional playoffs.
The Broncos blew a 17-point lead in a 34-27 loss at Pittsburgh on Dec. 20. Denver was without safeties Stewart, T.J. Ward and Omar Bolden that day and David Bruton Jr. played 75 snaps on a broken right leg.
The Steelers were the only team to top 30 points on Denver this season, and ailing Ben Roethlisberger was the only QB to throw for more than 300 yards against them.
