Jammer and Hillman lead the list of inactives for the Denver Broncos

An hour prior to kickoff, the NFL announced via press release the inactive players for Super Bowl 48 on Sunday.

For the Denver Broncos, it has been injured defensive tackle Sione Fua will indeed miss the contest. Joining him in street clothes will be third-string quarterback Zac Dysert, running back Ronnie Hillman, cornerback Quentin Jammer, tackle Vinston Painter, guard Chris Kuper and tight end Joel Dreessen.

Perhaps the most surprising of the group are Hillman and Jammer. Hilman entered the 2013 season in a competition for the starting spot at running back (even being atop the depth chart to begin the season), but fumbling issues caused him to slip behind both Knowshon Moreno and Monte Ball.

Jammer was added to provide depth in the secondary. The veteran was originally asked to move to safety, but was moved back to corner after a couple weeks. The 12-year veteran was targeted often during the latter stages of Denver’s divisional round matchup against the San Diego Chargers, and did not fare well. Recently signed Marquice Cole will replace him in the lineup.
