Chris Kuper out for Denver

By Bill Williamson

BALTIMORE -- The Denver Broncos will be without standout guard Chris Kuper again Sunday against the Ravens.

He missed the Oakland game with an ankle injury and he was questionable to play in this pivotal AFC game after being limited in practice all week. Manny Ramirez will play for Kuper. The Denver offensive line struggled at Oakland without Kuper.

Denver did get some good injury news Sunday. Linebacker and leading tackler Wesley Woodyard is active and he is expected to start. He missed the Oakland game with an ankle injury and he was questionable to face the Ravens.

In an interesting move, running back Jacob Hester is active for the first time since signing with Denver last month, and running back Lance Ball is inactive for the first time this season.
