The Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles are set to face off this afternoon at 4:25 p.m. ET, and it should be a fourth victory on the season for the Broncos. The Eagles pass defense just isn’t good enough to keep up with Peyton Manning and his four excellent pass-catchers, and the Eagles best hope at this point is another monster game from LeSean McCoy. However, that wasn’t enough to beat the Kansas City Chiefs last week, so I definitely don’t anticipate a big game from McCoy being enough to swing the balance. Below are the injury reports for both teams, and the Broncos list is a whole lot longer than the Eagles list.

Denver Broncos

Doubtful

LB Paris Lenon (thigh)

Questionable

TE Joel Dreessen (knee)

CB Champ Bailey (foot)- Bailey is expected to make his 2013 debut today.

SS Duke Ihenacho (ankle)- If the rising starting strong safety is out, then the Denver Broncos will start capable backup (he started last year but was beaten out by Ihenacho, who is the better player) Mike Adams in his stead. Ihenacho is a good playmaker who is excellent in the box, so his run stopping prowess would be missed by the Broncos.

Probable

RT Orlando Franklin (shoulder)

WR Eric Decker (shoulder)

WR Demaryius Thomas (ankle)

G Chris Kuper (ankle)

RB C.J. Anderson (knee)

CB Tony Carter (ankle)- He suffered the injury last week while blocking on a punt return.

WR Wes Welker (ankle)

LS Aaron Brewer (rib)

S Omar Bolden (shoulder)

S David Bruton (neck)

Philadelphia Eagles

Doubtful

FS Patrick Chung (shoulder)- Despite not practicing all week with a left shoulder contusion, the oft-injured veteran safety is going to be a game-time decision this afternoon after making the trip to Denver. While Chung is not expected to play, there is a chance that he plays and rookie Earl Wolff won’t be starting for the Eagles.

Probable

LT Jason Peters (finger)
