The Denver Broncos may be without just one player due to injury this week.  In preparation for their Week 3 showdown with the Houston Texans, the team released an injury report on Friday with guard Chris Kuper (forearm) the only player ruled out for Sunday.

Full report seen below:

Guard Chris Kuper (forearm) is listed as out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Cornerback Chris Harris (ankle), safety Quinton Carter (knee), linebacker Von Miller (hip), tight end Joel Dreessen (ribs), cornerback Tracy Porter (neck) and wide receiver Brandon Stokley (shoulder) are all probable for the contest.

For Houston, inside linebacker Tim Dobbins (hamstring) is questionable to suit up on Sunday. Eleven other players — outside linebacker Bryan Braman (hamstring), outside linebacker Brooks Reed (hip), defensive end Antonio Smith (ankle), outside linebacker Connor Barwin (elbow), guard Brandon Brooks (thumb), guard Antoine Caldwell (ankle), inside linebacker Brian Cushing (ribs), cornerback Jonathan Joseph (groin), cornerback Brice McBain (knee), center Chris Myers (neck), and outside linebacker Jesse Nading (knee) — are listed as probable.

Teams are allowed to have 46 of the roster’s 53 active players dress on Sunday’s; the remaining seven are listed as “inactive.”  Kuper will obviously be one of the inactives this week with backup quarterback Caleb Hanie and offensive lineman Philip Blake likely to be among the six other players that will not suit up for the game.

Sunday’s kickoff is scheduled for 2:25 p.m. in Denver.  The game will be broadcast across most of the country and called by CBS’ top crew of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms.
