Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) were limited in Wednesday's practice.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle, questionable) vowed to play in the Super Bowl.

"Anytime you get an opportunity to play in this game, and you can run a little bit, I'm guaranteeing you're going to be out there," Ward said. Fellow banged-up FS Darian Stewart (knee, questionable) echoed Ward's sentiment. "Without a doubt in my mind, I'm playing." Despite not practicing this week, both players should play against the Panthers.

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) were listed as "DNP" on the Wednesday injury report.

Denver did not actually practice on Wednesday, but Ward and Stewart would not have participated had a practice been held.

Jan 27 - 4:46 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos SS T.J. Ward is expected to be ready for the Super Bowl after aggravating his ankle injury in the AFC Championship Game.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle) said he will play in the Super Bowl.

Ward aggravated a lingering ankle injury in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship and never returned. Players are usually optimistic about their injuries, but Ward has been playing through the ankle issue for several weeks. Unless he made the injury worse, there is little chance he will sit out the Super Bowl. FS Darian Stewart (sprained knee) is also expected to be ready.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Ward should return after practicing on a limited basis all week. FS Darian Stewart (hamstring) is also listed as questionable. The Broncos secondary should be close to fully healthy for Monday night.
Sat, Dec 26, 2015 03:28:00 PM

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15.

The Broncos have had a lot of trouble containing tight ends since Ward went down with his high ankle sprain in Week 12 against New England. With the Broncos' elite cornerback crew set to guard Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant, and Markus Wheaton this week, Heath Miller is a sleeper for a lot of catches.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak deemed T.J. Ward (ankle) "day to day" at Monday's presser.

NBC Denver has reported Ward has a high-ankle sprain, which if true, means he's more week to week than day to day. We fully expect Ward to miss Week 13.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 4.

Ward wreaked havoc on Teddy Bridgewater and the Vikings Sunday. He recorded two sacks, a hit, and a hurry as a pass rusher, while also forcing a fumble. Not known as a cover safety, Ward also received strong marks from Pro Football Focus in that area Week 4. He's another game-changer on defense in Denver.
