The New Orleans Saints and the Denver Broncos each have a number of key players suffering from injuries as they get closer to their interconference match-up on Sunday afternoon.

The third and final injury report of the week for the Saints and the Broncos was released on Friday, ahead of their upcoming matchup this Sunday afternoon in the Mile High City.

New Orleans, who is currently riding a 7-game game win streak, lists 8 players on its injury report, while Denver reports 13.

There are also reports of COVID-19 within the Denver Broncos team on Friday according to Amie Just of Nola.com.

Not having Ty Montgomery isn't a huge deal for the Saints but missing Andrus Peat won't be great. However, New Orleans does have Nick Easton they can rely on as a back-up offensive lineman who could start for most other teams so they should be okay without Peat for this one.

If Deonte Harris were to miss the game we would see a lot more Marquez Callaway who would be returning kicks and getting more snaps as an offensive player.

There are, as you see a lot of question marks for the Broncos but two of their biggest ones are at cornerback with Bryce Callahan who should be good to go after a full run at practice Friday, and WR Jerry Jeudy. If Jeudy were to miss this game it would give the Saints secondary a much easier time of defending a less than stellar Broncos passing attack which is already without their top weapon Courtland Sutton.
