Gary Kubiak gives player updates for Friday's game

Posted Aug 7, 2013

Following training camp on Wednesday, head coach Gary Kubiak gave updates on injuries and who would or would not be starting in Friday's preseason game at Minnesota.

Head coach Gary Kubiak gave updates on several players following Wednesday’s practice, leading into Friday's preseason game at Minnesota.

-RB Ben Tate practiced and will likely start against Minnesota, following a groin injury he incurred last Friday.
“My plan is, if he feels fine coming out of today, he will,” Kubiak said of Tate’s status for Friday.

-OLB Sam Montgomery practiced with the team after missing camp due to an ankle sprain.
“All he did was scout team stuff. He didn’t do anything that pertains to the game,” said Kubiak. “It’s good to have him back. There’s no plan to play him right now. Hopefully, he’s back next week and playing against Miami.”

-ILB Tim Dobbins will not be playing in Friday’s game at Minnesota. Dobbins will stay back while he recovers from a shoulder/back injury.
“He’s doing fine,” Kubiak said after the morning practice. “He wants to go. It’s kind of us saying no. We get these young guys ready to play; I’ve got to make a decision whether we’re going to play him. He’s not going to play much at all if he plays anyways. So I’ve got to make a decision tomorrow, but he’s going to be okay.”

-CB Brandon Harris will not play as he is recovering from a hip flexor injury. Harris left practice early Tuesday and will not travel with the team.
“No, I don’t think Brandon will play,” said Kubiak when asked about Harris’ status. “As a matter of fact, he probably won’t even make the trip. He’s just got a hip flexor and that’s something that can get well in a few days. I feel like if we throw him out there, we’re probably going to set him way back.

"I think we’ll take the smart route here and we’re going to leave a certain group of guys home and let them rehab.”
