Ward (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. Tagging along since he was sidelined from Weeks 13 through 15, an ankle issue doesn't seem like it will stand in the way of Ward taking the field Sunday versus the Panthers. However, the final injury report of the week will clarify his potential to play.
Ward (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. Ward sat out Weeks 13 through 15 in order to tend to an ankle injury, which has lingered in the interim. With a limited showing Wednesday, the strong safety is on pace to suit up in Super Bowl 50, as expected, but the final injury report of the week will provide the last word on his availability.
Coach Gary Kubiak expects Ward to practice Wednesday, Troy Renck of The Denver Post reports. Ward has dealt with an ankle injury over the past two months but the issue doesn't seem to be a roadblock for his participation in the Super Bowl, especially since he participated in each of Denver's previous two playoff victories.
Ward (ankle) was a non-participant at Friday's practice, the Broncos' official site reports. For the second day in a row, Ward was in attendance, but his lack of a helmet on the practice field eventually held him out of drills yet again. Despite logging no practice reps before the Broncos travel to California next week, the starting strong safety intends to play in Super Bowl 50, which has been backed up by head coach Gary Kubiak, according to The Denver Post.
Ward (ankle) was back on the practice field Thursday as a limited participant, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post reports. Although he didn't do much at practice on Thursday, it was a good sign for the Broncos' starting safety to be back on the field. Despite aggravating his left ankle sprain during the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Patriots, Ward plans on being ready to go for the Super Bowl.
