Everybody, it seems, from Denver Broncos head coach John Fox to defensive coordinator Dennis Allen to one Aaron Rodgers wants to see Elvis Dumervil back in Denver's lineup Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers? Yes, the Green Bay Packers' alpha quarterback almost seemed happy this week at the prospect of the Broncos getting their injured Pro Bowl pass rusher back on defense in Lambeau Field.
"Elvis is a difference-maker," Rodgers said. "And he's fun to watch. As a fan, it's exciting to watch him coming off the edge and wreaking havoc."
Dumervil, who played only in spot duty in the season opener and missed the last two games because of a left shoulder injury, will give the Broncos some much-needed defensive flexibility against a high-powered Packers offense.
The Broncos also are expected to have linebacker D.J. Williams, who missed the first three games of the season with a dislocated elbow he suffered in the preseason.
Cornerback Champ Bailey, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, was still a question mark after Friday's practice, but the Broncos hope he will be available for at least some situational work.
