St. Croix’s Juwan Thompson Ready To Play in Sunday’s Game
Juwan Thompson of St. Croix
DENVER—No one told Juwan Thompson what was wrong. Or if they did, he wasn’t listening. And he didn’t ask.
The Denver Broncos’ backup running back was a full participant at practice Wednesday, an impressive feat given the neck injury he suffered on a goal line play late in the first half Sunday.
From the Detroit Lions’ 2 yard line, Thompson gained a yard before he was met head-on by linebacker Travis Lewis.
Thompson did not return. Ronnie Hillman finished the job on the next play with a 1-yard touchdown run.
“They didn’t tell me anything (about the injury) but I’m fine,” Thompson said. “My neck got pushed in – both of our necks got pushed in. It was a bad collision. I still feel like I should have got in.”
Thompson’s quick recovery means the Broncos are not expected to call up Kapri Bibbs from the practice squad this week for their game Sunday a
The Denver is undefeated this year at 3-0 while Minnesota is 2-1. The Broncos are 4.5 to 6.5-point favorites to win over the Vikings.
Denver is 22-1 in their last 23 regular season games at home.
