Broncos' Wilson 'super confident' of facing Colts, Taylor hopeful

Russell Wilson and Jonathan Taylor are both hopeful of being able to feature in Thursday's clash between the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts.

Broncos quarterback Wilson has been listed as 'limited' for team training at the start of the week with a shoulder injury but is "super confident" he will be able to take to the field against the Colts.

"I'm doing good, hanging in there. You get banged up a couple times here and there," he said.

Asked whether he feels he will be able to take to the field against the Colts, he added: "Yeah, I'm super confident."

Wilson has begun his Broncos career with a 61.1 per cent completion percentage, the lowest of his NFL career, throwing for 980 yards and four touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Colts running back Taylor was not as resolute with his fitness, having suffered a badly twisted ankle in Sunday's defeat to the Tennessee Titans.

"I definitely do plan to play, but if you can't go you can't go. That's why you have to get as much treatment as you can," he said on Tuesday.

Taylor has rushed for 328 yards in the opening four games of the season, scoring one touchdown, while adding 44 receiving yards.

Both sides have fallen beneath expectations at the start of the season, the Broncos 2-2 while the Colts are 1-2-1.
