ESPN.com’s Jeff Legwald reports that Hinton (hamstring) will make limited participation in Thursday’s practice.
Hinton, who hadn’t practiced at all in the past two weeks between a win over the Cardinals and a loss to the Rams, had two limited practices to start preparing for Week 17. Fellow receivers Courtland Sutton (hamstring) and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) joined Hinton as a limited participant in both of the Broncos’ first two practices this week, but the two lost to Los Angeles. Having played on Christmas Day, both are good bets to match on Sunday in Kansas City. Hinton, meanwhile, may need to graduate to be able to fully participate in practice on Friday, prove he’s healed from his injury, and guarantee he’ll be able to compete on Sunday.
