Drew Lock will get the start at quarterback when the Denver Broncos host the Miami Dolphins despite missing practice Wednesday with bruised ribs and a strained oblique he sustained last week against the Raiders.
Lock shared snaps with backup Brett Rypien after missing Wednesday’s practice. Also active are tight end Noah Fant (ribs) and cornerback Bryce Callahan, who was sick Friday.
The Broncos are without defensive end Shelby Harris for the third consecutive week and defensive coordinator Ed Donatell for the fourth week in a row as they recover from the novel coronavirus.
Dolphins linebacker Kyle Van Noy (hip) and guard Solomon Kindley (foot) are both active after being limited during the week and listed as questionable.
Quarterback Joe Flacco will get his fourth start of the season as the New York Jets visit the Los Angeles Chargers. Sam Darnold is out because of a shoulder injury.
The Chargers have defensive end Joey Bosa back after he missed the past two games because of a concussion. The team did place linebacker and leading tackler Kyzir White on the COVID-19 list on Saturday.
Indianapolis Colts right tackle Braden Smith will miss the game against Green Bay with a thumb injury, marking only the second time in the past 26 games Indianapolis has not had all five starting offensive linemen play. Left tackle Anthony Castonzo missed the Cleveland game in October with a rib injury and the Colts lost 32-23.
Colts tight end Jack Doyle will be active after clearing the concussion protocol on Friday.
Green Bay will be without running back Tyler Ervin, who has rib and wrist injuries but cornerback Kevin King and wide receiver Allen Lazard are expected to return from injuries.

The Minnesota Vikings signed a new long snapper this week, 33-year-old veteran Andre DePaola, after Austin Cutting’s low snap last week led to a failed extra point in a six-point win at Chicago.
