ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos activated three players from injured reserve on Saturday, including cornerback Bryce Callahan.

The team also placed outside linebacker Malik Reed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Broncos (6-6) host the Detroit Lions (1-10-1) on Sunday.

Before the game, Denver will honor receiver Demaryius Thomas, who died Thursday night in his suburban Atlanta home at the age of 33. The Broncos players will wear a No. 88 decal on their helmet. In addition, there will be a painted ‘88’ logo on Denver’s sideline.

Callahan has been on injured reserve since Nov. 3 due to a knee injury. Denver also activated inside linebacker Micah Kiser (groin) and cornerback Michael Ojemudia (hamstring) from injured reserve.

So far this season, Callahan has recorded 21 tackles, one sack and four passes defensed. Ojemudia has been sidelined since hurting his hamstring in a preseason game on Aug. 21 at Seattle. He went on injured reserve on Sept. 2.

Reed has five sacks for the Broncos this season along with two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
