Kareem Jackson has missed the last two games with a rib injury, but might be back to face the Patriots on Sunday at Reliant Stadium.
"Kareem, I think he'll do everything he possibly can to play this week," head coach Gary Kubiak said on Monday afternoon. "But I think it's still day-to-day."
Jackson was injured in the loss at Arizona during Week 10. He didn't suit up against the Raiders or Jaguars, and last Friday said he has a "broken first rib" behind his collarbone.
Jackson and Johnathan Joseph are the starters at cornerback, and Jackson has 42 tackles, four passes defensed and an interception in 2013.
