Packers-Broncos inactives: Jimmy Graham will play, Broncos down a cornerback

New, comments

Jimmy Graham is active for the Packers and the Broncos will be down a cornerback.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears USA TODAY Sports

The injury report is officially out for the week 3 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Denver Broncos. The most notable name left off the Inactives list is Jimmy Graham. Kyler Fackrell will also play.

The Broncos defense is not what they once were, and have yet to record a sack this season. Rodgers should have plenty of time in the backfield, and players like Jimmy Graham and other wide receivers should get more chances this week.

The Broncos will be without their right tackle Ja’Wuan James who was ruled out on Friday's injury report. This is good news for the Packers defense, who through the first two weeks have created the most QB pressures in the league. Look for them to continue to find themselves in the backfield all game long. Cornerback Bryce Callahan is also officially out, which means an already struggling defense is going to be without another player. This is great news for the Packers offense who are looking to get more out of their receiving corps.
