When the Broncos (12-3) take on the Chiefs (2-13) this weekend, offensive guard Chris Kuper could be on the field. Kuper is listed as “questionable” after being limited in practice this week.
The most likely scenario seems to be Denver resting Kuper this week, giving him two weeks to rest in preparation for the divisional round of the playoffs (assuming Denver secures a first round bye this weekend). If all goes well, the Broncos should have both Kuper and running back Willis McGahee back in time for the postseason.
