The Denver Broncos are practicing without a half dozen of their key players.

Pro Bowlers Champ Bailey (hamstring) and Brandon Lloyd (groin) missed Wednesday's workout along with fellow starters Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and Elvis Dumervil (shoulder). All of them were hurt Monday night against Oakland.

They might join D.J. Williams (elbow), Marcus Thomas (pectoral), Demaryius Thomas (foot) and Ty Warren (triceps) on the sideline Sunday when the Broncos (0-1) host the Cincinnati Bengals (1-0).

The eight players who missed practice Wednesday have a collective 55 years of NFL experience. Bailey, Williams, Dumervil and Marcus Thomas represent four of the five players on the roster who have been with the Broncos the longest. The other is Chris Kuper, who had a toe injury in the preseason but is healthy again.

    These Broncos are starting to bare a resemblance to last years disappointing team. When are they going to pull it together. It's hard to remain a fam when all you watch are your players getting hurt as they lose.
