Linebacker Lawrence Timmons did not practice yesterday for the fourth consecutive day.

Although he is officially listed as doubtful for the game tomorrow night in Denver, players who cannot practice almost never play in games.

Safety Ryan Clark participated fully in practice but is listed as questionable and not expected to play because of health concerns related to sickle-cell anemia.

Defensive end Travis Kirschke (torn calf muscle) also is listed as doubtful.

Given that Orton relies on a short passing game this would be a huge loss. Timmons is our best coverage LB.

I don't like how this game is shaping up. Coming off a bye with the potential to be flat and three key members of the defense out with injuries or not playing because of health reasons.
