Risner is back at practice after recovering from COVID-19, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Risner missed all of practice last week after catching COVID-19 in between his two vaccine shots. He has cleared protocols and should be fine going forward. The third year offensive guard is expected to start on the Denver offensive line again next season.
Risner was forced out of Sunday's game against the Raiders with an ankle injury, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Risner has started every game this season. Austin Schlottmann is expected to slot in at left guard if Risner can't return.

The 25-year-old underwent an MRI on his shoulder at the start of the week, but the injury won't impact his availability for Sunday's contest. Risner will slot into his usual spot at left guard for Denver.
Coach Vic Fangio said Risner (shoulder) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. "We're hopeful that he'll play, but it's questionable," Fangio said.
Risner under went an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, but it appears there was not significant damage to the shoulder. Risner was forced out of last week's game against the Patriots, and if he's forced to miss more time, Austin Schlottmann is in line to take over left guard duties.
Risner will undergo an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. "I am always optimistic. But it's too soon to tell (on diagnosis)," Risner said Sunday.
Risner suffered the injury in the second half of Sunday's win over the Patriots and failed to return. The hope is that the injury isn't serious, but expect the team to update Risner's status in the coming days. Austin Schlottmann took over at left guard Sunday, and he'd be the favorite to do so again should Risner miss anymore time.
Risner (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Patriots, Patrick Smyth of the Broncos' official site reports.
The Broncos will be depleted on the offensive line so long as Risner is unavailable, though there remains a possibility he can relieve backup left guard Austin Schlottmann during the course of the second half. Denver's offensive line allowed two sacks on QB Drew Lock through the first three quarters of play Sunday, but also carved the way to 119 team rushing yards during that span.
Risner does not appear on Wednesday's injury report, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
An illness prevented Risner from playing during the second half of last Sunday's game against the Lions. However, his absence from the injury report (the Broncos estimated practice participation for the holiday) suggests Risner is no longer under the weather.
Risner didn't play the second half of Sunday's 27-17 win over the Lions due to an illness, which he dealt with all week, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Risner was able to get through the first half, but following the break, Patrick Morris filled in at left guard. Considering this has been a lingering sickness, Risner's status for the season finale against Oakland is uncertain.
Risner (lower leg) is absent from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns.

Risner (lower leg) is hopeful he can play in Sunday's game against the Browns, Troy Renck of thedenverchannel.com reports.
Risner had his ankle stepped on by a teammate in a pile during Sunday's loss to the Colts. He was subsequently seen wearing a walking boot following the game. While he remains hopeful to play Week 9, his status will have to be monitored throughout the week. Austin Schlottmann would be in line to replace him at left guard should he end up being unable to give it a go.
Risner (lower leg) was seen in a walking boot following Sunday's loss to the Colts, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Risner briefly left Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but played through the pain. The fact that he was seen in a walking boot suggests he could be dealing with a substantial injury, but the team will likely look to get an MRI or X-rays before making the announcement on Risner's injury.
