Conflicting reports on Jordan Reed's status emerge
FOXSports.com reported Thursday the
Coach Mike Shanahan told reporters the team has not talked about shutting Reed down. Reed has been visiting different doctors for daily testing, as he continues to deal with headaches related to the concussion.
"It'll be an ongoing process," Shanahan said. "I think that's why they have this process, to make sure somebody doesn't come back too early, no matter what type of headache they do have. But if they don’t pass the test, there's reason for concern."

Broncos DST can't hold up Thursday
The Broncos held the Chargers to just 338 yards of total offense, but the Chargers still found the end zone three times, all within a 15-minute span in the second and third quarters. That would be all San Diego needed, as the Broncos failed to force a single turnover, and managed only two sacks in the loss.
The Broncos have now allowed at least 27 points in four straight games, heading into Week 16 against the Texans in Houston.

Chargers slow down Broncos in win
The Broncos, who entered the game averaging a league-best 39.6 points per game, managed just 10 in each half Thursday. This was the Broncos' lowest scoring game of the season, though it continues a pattern, as each of their four lowest have come in the last five games.
The Chargers dominated time of possession, as the Broncos held the ball for just over 20 minutes. As a result, Denver's offense managed just 307 yards, despite turning the ball over just once on a Peyton Manning interception. The Chargers added just one sack.
Typically, the Broncos have been the worst possible sight for a DST unit to have on the schedule. Though it wasn't a particularly spectacular game from a Fantasy perspective, the Chargers definitely outperformed expectations Thursday. They will try to keep the momentum going in Week 16, with the Raiders on the schedule.
