Broncos injury report: P.J. Locke ruled out for ‘Sunday Night Football’

Denver Broncos safety P.J. Locke (ankle) has been ruled out for a Sunday Night Football showdown with the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 after being sidelined at practice this week.

After returning from a two-game suspension, Kareem Jackson is expected to start against Minnesota across from Justin Simmons in Denver’s secondary. Locke started the last two weeks during Jackson’s suspension.

Elsewhere on the injury front, guard Ben Powers (foot) was back at practice Friday and wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (hip) fully participated. Neither Powers nor Jeudy have an injury designation, so they have been cleared to play.

The Broncos’ complete injury report can be seen below.
