Virgil Green, the team's best blocking tight end, expects to return to the lineup this weekend after missing three games with a strained right calf.

Green has only been targeted twice this season, so it is obvious his role is to protect Peyton Manning from maurading blitzers. Having him back will help the Denver passing game get back on track after last weeks' disaster against the Rams.

Broncos signed running back Jeremy Stewart to their active roster and waived running back Kapri Bibbs on Saturday.

Stewart will be third on the depth chart, behind C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson. Ronnie Hillman and Monte Ball are both out with injuries in Week 12, prompting the promotion from the practice squad.

Broncos could sign Richie Incognito next week.

The Broncos gave Incognito a tryout last week and apparently liked what they saw. So long as the character issue is not a problem, he should do just fine as a reserve and eventual starting lineman once again.

Broncos add DE DeMarcus Ware (illness) to the teams injury report. He's listed as probable.

It sounds like Ware has the stomach bug that has been hitting a variety of players around the NFL. He should be fine for Sunday though. Maybe a little dehydrated, but fine.

Montee Ball (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday.

With Ball and Ronnie Hillman out, C.J. Anderson will handle the lead running back duties on Sunday. Juwan Thompson should also see some touches in short-yardage situations.

Virgil Green was limited in practice on Friday.

Green would be the back-up to Jacob Tamme if he plays. However, he's considered more of a blocking option than anything else. His participation in practice shouldn't be too heavy a concern for fantasy owners.

Coach John Fox said Julius Thomas did not practice Friday. "We could have called him limited, but it was closer to out." He is a gametime decision.

It sounds as if the Broncos are going to wait until the last possible second before ruling out Thomas. If he plays, he could see his snaps limited, so don't expect him to post typical Julius Thomas numbers. If he's out, grab yourself some Jacob Tamme as he's going to get plenty of work.

Emmanuel Sanders has been cleared and will play Sunday.

Wow. This is actually pretty surprising but power to him for getting back out there without missing an action. We'll have to see just how involved Peyton Manning keeps him, but his return to the field is likely to ruin any sleeper value Andre Caldwell may have had.

Julius Thomas (ankle) was seen out on the practice field Friday, but not participating.

Thomas continues to be hindered by the ankle injury he suffered in Week 11 and has missed yet another practice. Don't expect to see him on the field Sunday though. Jacob Tamme should get the primary tight end work this week.

Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is practicing Friday. He's expected to play Sunday.

We have yet to hear whether Sanders has been cleared for contact just yet. He may be allowed to take part in some pass-catching drills, but until you hear that he puts in a full practice, expect him to remain on the sidelines this week.
