The following is an injury update from Denver in San Diego:
In Denver, both receiver Eddie Royal and star left cornerback Champ Bailey will be game-time decisions Sunday against the host Jets. Both players are listed as questionable on Denver's injury report.
Royal may be closer to hitting the field than Bailey. Royal has been dealing with a toe injury all week, but he told reporters in Denver on Friday that he's feeling pretty good. He was limited in practice all week.
Bailey was also limited in practice all week with a groin injury. He's been limited in practice for the last three weeks and hasn't played since Oct. 20. Earlier in the week, team officials were hopeful that he could play against the Jets.
Linebacker Nate Webster, who has missed two games with a knee injury, is questionable and he is expected to sit until the Kansas City game. Also, linebacker D.J. Williams, who has missed three games with a knee injury, will likely have to wait until the Kansas City game as well for his return. He is listed as doubtful on the injury report.
In San Diego, rookie fullback Mike Tolbert is doubtful with a shoulder injury he suffered against Indianapolis last Sunday night. Tolbert has not practiced all week. Rookie running back Jacob Hester took over for Tolbert last week and did a good job. Hester will likely be in the mix Sunday against Atlanta.
It appears defensive lineman Luis Castillo will be back to face the Falcons. He practiced fully Friday for the first time and is listed as probable on the injury report. He did not play last week against Indianapolis.
Meanwhile, the local television blackout has been lifted in San Diego. Thus, Sunday's game against the Falcons will be shown locally.It will be San Diego's 36th straight sellout. Now, it has to sell tickets to next Thursday's game against Oakland. The blackout deadline will be Monday.
