Trevathan, Decker listed as probable
By Jeff Legwold
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan is on track to play Sunday in Dallas after an injury scare earlier this week. Trevathan, who was carted off the practice field with a knee injury Wednesday afternoon, participated fully in Friday’s workout and the Broncos formally listed him as probable for the game.
Kicker Matt Prater, who was limited with a right calf injury -- his kicking leg -- in Thursday’s practice, also took part fully on Friday and was listed as probable. Wide receiver Eric Decker (ankle) also took part fully and expected to take his usual number of snaps on Sunday. Cornerback Champ Bailey, who says he continues to close in on returning to the field, was limited Friday and was listed as questionable. Broncos coach John Fox said Bailey, who has not played since suffering a left foot injury in the Aug. 17 preseason loss to Seattle, was a game-time decision.
“I think sometimes circumstances create poor judgement,’’ Fox said of Bailey's status. “ … He’s a 12-time Pro Bowler, I think a first-ballot Hall of Fame guy, we’re looking forward to getting him completely healthy and getting him back in the lineup.’’
Linebacker Paris Lenon (thigh) was limited Friday and was listed as questionable. Tight end Joel Dreessen (knee), center Manny Ramirez (ribs), defensive tackle Mitch Unrein (neck), guard Chris Kuper (ankle) all participated fully and were listed as probable.
