Right guard Chris Kuper is active for the Denver Broncos' game against Kansas City. He hasn't played since Dec. 2 because of a left ankle sprain.
Kuper, who also was dealing with migraine headaches, has played in six games this season. He missed the first month with a broken forearm and five of the last seven with problems in his left ankle.
Kick returner Trindon Holliday (ankle) and cornerback Tracy Porter (concussion) are among the Broncos' inactives.
Tackle Branden Albert (back) is being replaced by Donald Stephenson in the Chiefs' starting lineup, and end Tyson Jackson (foot) is being replaced by Shaun Smith.

If the Broncos go all the way, Holliday will be the only player in NFL history...

Then, he went out and fixed it - first by hiring John Elway, who remembered how things worked when the Broncos were one of the NFL's premier organizations, then by bringing on John Fox as coach and, eventually, Peyton Manning...

It was an appropriate salute for two franchises whose fortunes couldn't have been...
