DENVER — “Mr. Unlimited” went from “limited” on the injury report Tuesday to not even being questionable for Thursday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

That came as no surprise to anyone who heard Wilson after Tuesday’s walk-through.

“I’m super confident,” Wilson replied when asked about his confidence level of playing.

Wilson landed on the injury report this week after hurting his throwing shoulder last Sunday in Las Vegas.

In addition to Wilson, RB Melvin Gordon (neck), LG Dalton Risner (ankle), CB K’Waun Williams (wrist) and S Caden Sterns (hip/chest) are all expected to play despite landing on the injury report.

Denver ruled four players out:

  • Edge rusher Jonathon Cooper (hamstring)
  • S P.J. Locke (concussion)
  • RG Quinn Meinerz (hamstring)
  • Edge rusher Aaron Patrick (concussion)

Locke and Patrick entered the league-mandated post-concussion protocol after leaving last Sunday’s game. By the time frame dictated by the protocol, they had no chance of playing Thursday once they entered it.

Cooper injured his hamstring in practice Sept. 22. He has not practiced since then. Meinerz injured his hamstring in the first quarter of Week 1. He thought he’d play last week, but incurred a setback. Meinerz did not practice last Friday and worked on the side rehab field Tuesday.

Also on the side field was RT Billy Turner, who is one of three players listed as questionable. The others, WR Tyrie Cleveland and CB Darius Phillips, received the “limited” designation for their projected practice workloads this week.

Cleveland and Phillips last played in Week 2. Turner has yet to see a snap in any type of game this season.
