ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — After seeing limited work Thursday, QB Russell Wilson had a full practice workload Friday, keeping him on track to play Monday night.

That didn’t surprise Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett at all.

“When it comes to anything, if he feels a tweak here or there, he’s non-stop trying to get everything right,” Hackett said. “So, in the case of the shoulder, he’s working on it non-stop, 24/7. He’s making sure it’s good, and that’s how it got to full so fast.”

The quarterback received a platelet-rich-plasma injection to aid the healing of his right lattismus dorsi (lat) muscle on Oct. 7 in Los Angeles.

Wilson was among four Broncos who saw an upgrade in status. RB Mike Boone (foot), CB Darius Phillips (hamstring) and NT Mike Purcell (ankle) also saw full workloads after being limited Wednesday.

Phillips has not played since Week 2. Boone and Purcell each played last week against the Indianapolis Colts.

LG Dalton Risner (back tightness) and ILB Josey Jewell (knee) did not participate in the full-pad practice. Both worked out on the north field that the Broncos use for rehab work.

Risner awoke Thursday with back discomfort and did not practice Wednesday, but he and the Broncos are optimistic about his chances to play Monday.

“We just wanted to be sure we cleared that up,” Hackett said.

Also of note:

  • TE Greg Dulcich, CB Michael Ojemudia and S Justin Simmons all practiced Friday. The three players remain on injured reserve, but can be activated prior to Monday night’s game and be eligible to play.
  • RT Billy Turner saw limited work Friday. Turner saw a slew of repetitions during offensive-tackle drills during an individual period of practice.
