Broncos out four key players Sunday; WR Lloyd probable

The Denver Broncos should get Brandon Lloyd back for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, but for a second straight week they'll be without a number of key players on both sides of the ball.

Wide receivers Eddie Royal (groin) and Demaryius Thomas (finger), tight end Julius Thomas (ankle) defensive end Elvis Dumervil (shoulder) and defensive tackle Marcus Thomas (groin) have all been ruled out for Week 3 after missing all three practices this week. 

There is some good news for Broncos fans, as Lloyd should be back after missing a week with a groin injury. Lloyd was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday and is listed as probable.

Cornerback Champ Bailey (hamstring) also did not practice this week but is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Bailey missed last week's win over the Cincinnati Bengals with this hamstring injury. Running back Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and linebacker D.J. Williams are also questionable.

Williams dislocated his elbow during the preseason and has not played this season.
