Default Dumervil plans to practice Friday, play Sunday

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- If Elvis Dumervil and D.J. Williams get their way, they'll both spend Sunday harassing San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers.
Dumervil first has to show he's healthy enough to play and Williams has to prove he's knocked off the rust.
Dumervil hasn't practiced all week but plans to test his sprained left shoulder at practice Friday in hopes the Broncos (6-3) will clear him to face the Chargers (4-5). The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end was injured at Carolina last weekend but medical tests this week showed no torn muscles or ligaments.
''My goal is to play,'' Dumervil said. ''That's what I've got to look toward tomorrow, coming out and getting a good practice in and getting ready.''
Dumervil had a similar injury to the same shoulder that sidelined him for two games and most of a third last season, but he said this injury is ''nowhere near'' as serious or as painful as that one was.

Start Ayers, use Dumervil in rotation/passing downs.

At this point, keep him on the bench to start with. If the defense is struggling for whatever reason, bring him in. But if we are ahead and can afford to let him rest up, I think that would be a good idea.

In the history of football, never has a player been activated to use in emergency of the team struggling or falling behind because he was too injured to play otherwise.

Coaches value the 46 spots they get on game day and pretty much expect everyone to contribute in some way outside of the backup QB.

This isn't Madden son.

I would keep him out this week, but that's just me.

Hope he stays healthy. We can get by the chargers without him, but will need him definitely for the playoffs.

At this point I think they will probably sit Doom and let him heal up. Ayers has played really well the past couple of weeks.

As far as D.J. goes, I seriously doubt he's in football shape to be on the field 2 or 3 downs for an entire game. Maybe they rotate him into the fold at MLB in certain blitzing packages.

Let Doom rest and we can roll with Bob Ayers, Wolfe, and Jackson.

Agreed.

Also work DJ in slowly if he is going to become a part of the defenae. The chemistry on the D is a reason why they are playing well. Don't want to mess with that just for DUI.
