Peko has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, and although he has been limited in both practices this week, he appears on track to suit up Thursday. Expect confirmation of his status to be made closer to game-time.
Peko (knee) will not be active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.
With Adam Gotsis dealing with an illness as well, the Broncos are left with three fully healthy defensive linemen. Peko will miss his second consecutive game Sunday, so the Broncos will likely turn to his cousin Kyle Peko as the main run clogger.
Peko (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
Peko was not at practice either of the last two days, but the team is still holding out hope that the defensive tackle will be able to make a return this weekend. Expect Peko to be a game-time decision Sunday, but being unable to practice with the sprained MCL surely isn't encouraging for him.
Peko (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
Though Peko was hopeful to avoid an absence after suffering a second-degree MCL sprain in last week's loss to the Raiders, his fate was sealed after he was unable to practice in any capacity this week. The nose tackle's inactive status in Week 13 will spell an end to his 123-game start streak.
Broncos head coach Vance Joseph confirmed Monday that Peko suffered a second-degree MCL sprain in his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Raiders and would be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
Assuming Joseph's projected holds true, Peko will sit out Week 13 against the Dolphins, spelling an end to the nose tackle's 123-game start streak. Peko has registered 35 stops, a sack and a fumble recovery in 11 contests this season.
