Expected to start Thursday

Bridgewater (foot/quadriceps), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Browns, is expected to start for the Broncos, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

While taking 17 hits (including five sacks) in Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Raiders, Bridgewater picked up a pair of injuries along the way. The left foot injury in particular appears to be the greater concern, but Palmer notes that Bridgewater has been moving around better as the week has progressed. Assuming Bridgewater checks out fine when he reports to the stadium Thursday, he should avoid the inactive list and direct the Denver offense Week 7. His status will be confirmed with the release of the Broncos' inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to the 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.
