Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that it's "doubtful" that Bouye (shoulder) suits up in Sunday's game against the Patriots, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Bouye returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since being placed on IR on Sept. 14. The team has 20 days to activate him, but it doesn't appear that will occur in time for the Week 6 contest. Expect Bouye to continue healing up while practicing, and for Michael Ojemudia to handle starting duties opposite Bryce Callahan in Week 6.
