For the first time since October, both cornerback Tracy Porter and offensive guard Chris Kuper could be out on the field on Sunday.
When the Broncos take on the Chiefs this weekend, Porter (illness) and Kuper (ankle) should be able to play.
Both players fully participated in practice throughout week and Porter was cleared to play on Thursday.
“Every prayer you guys sent up for me has been answered everyday. I thank you [all] for that. And I will make sure I show you guys my thank you’s,” Porter tweeted earlier in the week.
If Kuper is able to go, he will reclaim his starting right guard position from Manny Ramirez, who has filled in for seven games this season. Kuper’s return will be welcomed by quarterback Peyton Manning, as Ramirez has allowed a team-high seven sacks this season.
If Porter is able to play, it will likely be in a rotational role, as Chris Harris and Tony Carter have stepped up during his absence. It will be interesting to see if Porter, now healthy, can reclaim his starting position this season. We’ll be watching closely—stay tuned.

When voting for the 2012 Pro Bowl, fans can vote for Denver Broncos middle linebacker Keith Brooking twice on the same ballot.
In a possible glitch on NFL.com, the Pro Bowl ballot has Brooking listed both as an ILB—inside linebacker—and OLB—outside linebacker—for the Broncos. Denver’s two other OLBs listed are Von Miller and Wesley Woodyard.
The Broncos were presumably...
Peyton Manning has been doing his job for a long time, but the past year has to have been the hardest of his brilliant career.
Overcoming two neck surgeries within a year, extensive rehabilitation, and leaving his longtime home Indianapolis for Denver had to be challenging.
Manning doesn't want to hear excuses, he hasn't made any; and because of that, the Broncos sit...
Peyton Manning says he’s not trying to do the things he did at 28. Once again, he’s trying to fake everyone out. Manning is an MVP and Comeback Player of the Year candidate. The latter is pretty much a wrap.
It’s true that he isn’t trying to do the same things at 28; he had 49 touchdowns and a passer rating of 121.1. That would be ridiculous.
Maybe he was talking about...
The Broncos are looking like a Super Bowl contender. Do they have enough defense to take out the Patriots this postseason?
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season.
Let's take a look at week 12.

The Broncos placed starting running back Willis McGahee on injured reserve yesterday, leaving no short-yardage backs remaining on the roster.
Denver will likely have a rotation of Knowshon Moreno, Ronnie Hillman, and Lance Ball on Sunday, but none of those three backs can run between the tackles or pass block as well as McGahee. For that reason, the Broncos have...
Even though the Denver Broncos placed running back Willis McGahee on injured reserve, they put him on the designation to return list in hopes that he’ll be back in time for the AFC Championship game. Of course they’re being optimistic that they’ll make it that far this season.
IR for Willis McGahee expected as @jayglazer reported. But it would be with designation to return...

After ranking 23rd overall in 2011, the Denver Broncos offense has turned things around this season.
Last season, the Broncos ranked 25-of-32 among teams in points scored (309) and scored 30 points in a game on just two occasions. Needless to say, the Broncos have made great improvements in 2012.
This season, the Broncos have scored 30 points...
If only Lance Ball could have found the umpire faster, Matt Prater might just have written his name in the record books.
The Denver Broncos had crossed midfield and Prater was all set to try a 67-yard field goal right before halftime in their 30-23 win over San Diego, but the clock ran out before the umpire could spot the ball for Peyton Manning to spike.
Oh well, maybe next time...

For most of the last decade, the Broncos have made late-season swoons an annual rite of winter in the Rocky Mountains.
Altitude. Aptitude. Attitude. Whatever the reasons, the Broncos have followed strong starts...
