Kareem Jackson “good to go” Sunday against Chargers, a return that would boost the Broncos secondary (Kyle Newman, The Denver Post)
“I’ll be good to go Sunday,” Jackson said. “It wasn’t quite ready last week, so I’m easing back in. I’ll see how it all feels (after practicing this week), and if it all goes well, I should be good to go.”
There are Broncos games and there are Broncos games against Philip Rivers (Mike Klis, 9News)
“There’s a handful of guys over there that we’ve played a lot of games against,’’ Rivers said. “When you think about Chris Harris Jr. and Von Miller, in particular, there has been a lot of football games against those two guys. Tons of respect for those guys along with the rest of that defense, but those are two guys — they’re in there with Derek Wolfe –that I’ve play against a lot. It’s always a heck of a game and it’s always a big challenge going against this group.’’

“Everybody else has to step up,” defensive coordinator Ed Donatell said. “Von is such a great competitor, it will probably take his game to another level.”
