Brian Dawkins is active

Denver safety Brian Dawkins is active and expected to play in Buffalo.

He missed last week’s game against New England with a neck injury. Dawkins was inactive all week in practice.

Meanwhile, ESPN’s Mark Schwarz reported from Buffalo that Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was the only player on the field in pregame warm-ups not to wear sleeves. It was 26 degrees at the time and it’s expected to be 30 degrees at game time. Schwarz reported Tebow is not planning to wear gloves during the game.

Also, Oakland rookie running back Taiwan Jones is inactive in Kansas City with a hamstring injury. Starter Michael Bush has a shoulder injury and he was limited all week.
