Safety LaRon Landry (hamstring) and linebacker Brian Orakpo (ankle) both were limited in practice on Thursday, according to Coach Mike Shanahan. The coach said it’s still too early to tell if either can play Sunday.

Inside linebacker Keyaron Fox also was limited by back soreness.

Shanahan said he feels confident about outside linebacker Rob Jackson if Jackson needs to start in place of Orakpo.

Shanahan said tight end Chris Cooley continues to be able to practice fully despite being hampered by a knee injury all preseason. Shanahan didn’t say how much Cooley’s playing time would increase Sunday, however.
