Just like a number of squads around the NFL the Denver Broncos enter a Week 6 clash with the Los Angeles Chargers struggling with injuries. The season hasn't started off on the best note, but this Monday Night Football division rivalry presents an opportunity to get back to .500 and right in the thick of the AFC West.

Unfortunately, the Broncos will be without two key defenders on Monday night.

Denver officially ruled out a pair of starting players in linebacker Josey Jewell and safety Caden Sterns. Team insider Nick Kosmider reported the news on Saturday afternoon.

These losses hurt. Despite missing the first two contests, Jewell currently leads the team with 30 combined tackles and has laid 6 hits on opposing QBs. Sterns ranks first on the squad with a pair of interceptions 4 passes defended.

A matchup against Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler and the Chargers offense is no easy task. The team ranks second in the NFL in passing yards (1,456), ninth in points scored (122) and fifth in passing TDs (10).

As it stands, the Broncos are considered 4.5-point road underdogs per NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
