Joe Burrow (finger) practiced in full Thursday. Burrow was able to play through his injured finger last week, so the DNP on Wednesday always looked like a rest day. This full practice would seem to confirm that. Burrow will be a high-end QB2 against the Broncos.

Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Melvin Gordon (hand) will not practice Wednesday. Gordon suffered a sprained thumb in the first quarter of his Week 14 blowup performance. He was listed as questionable to return but retook the field within a few minutes. After the game, it was reported that the issue wouldn’t cause him to miss anytime. Expect his practice reps to ramp up later this week. He enters his Week 15 matchup with the Bengals as a low-end RB2.
