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.
