Peko has missed the past two games with a knee injury but appears to be making progress to play Thursday Night against the Colts. This would be a nice boost to the Broncos run defense as they prepare to take on the tough running Frank Gore.
The other big injury news the Broncos received today was that second-year safety Justin Simmons will be placed on the season-ending injured reserve. He suffered a high ankle sprain last week and the Broncos decided there was no need to rush him back for the remaining meaningless games.
Finally, quarterback Paxton Lynch was ruled out for tomorrow night’s game with an ankle injury. His status will be something to monitor next week as the Broncos have some time off before next week’s game against Washington.
As for the Colts, they have ruled out five players for tomorrow night’s game. Cornerback Rashaan Melvin, wide receiver Donte Moncrief, tight end Darrell Daniels, center Ryan Kelly, and cornerback Nate Harrison.
