The first bit of news was already mentioned elsewhere, but here it is.
Gary Kubiak said Broncos will put S/special teamer Omar Bolden on IR this week. Partially torn PCL.

Tough blow, especially after Bolden had a great punt return to start his day. One would suspect somebody gets moved up from the practice squad and Shiloh Keo will be active for special teams against New England.
Chris Harris Jr. "didn't get any worse" Sunday … played with one arm, Kubiak said. "I appreciate him working through it."

Kubiak expects Harris to play Sunday, but he will be limited.
The real key, though, is for the Broncos to get the pass rush going and keep those players healthy. The Patriots facing the Chiefs with Justin Houston limited to eight snaps and Tamba Hali not at full strength is one thing, but if the Broncos can keep their defensive front seven intact throughout the game, it could help counter what ails Harris.
Of course, it’s also worth crossing our fingers that the Broncos don’t lose any more defensive backs to injury.
