Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
Here is an injury update for the Broncos, Chiefs, and Chargers:
In Denver, linebacker D.J. Williams practiced fully. He has missed five games with a knee injury. He will be monitored throughout the week. Cornerback Champ Bailey, who has missed six weeks with a groin injury, continues to be limited in his participation. Denver coach Mike Shanahan said Bailey won't run fully until Saturday. Then, the team will make a decision on whether he will play Sunday in Carolina in a game where Denver can clinch the AFC West division title with a win.
Fullback/middle linebacker Spencer Larsen (groin) and receiver Brandon Stokley (foot) didn't practice. The two players will be monitored through the week. Safety Marlon McCree practiced fully and he could play Sunday after missing several weeks with an ankle injury.
In Kansas City, center Rudy Niswanger didn't practice because of a knee injury he suffered at Denver on Sunday. Receiver Mark Bradley was limited with a calf injury that kept him out of the Denver game and cornerback Maurice Leggett, who has scored touchdown in each of the last two games, was limited with a shoulder injuries. The team is hopeful he can play against visiting San Diego on Sunday.
In San Diego, defensive tackle Jamal Williams didn't practice Wednesday which has become a routine. Safety Clinton Hart (shoulder) and fullback Mike Tolbert (shoulder) were practicing on a limited basis. Tolbert missed the past two games.
