*UPDATE* Kirkpatrick has since returned to the field after a slight injury scare.
Dre Kirkpatrick is down on the field. Looks like he's pointing to his left ankle/foot— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) December 2, 2018
Kirkpatrick missed last week’s game with a shoulder injury. Earlier, both Vontaze Burfict and William Jackson briefly left the game and subsequently returned.
A few plays later, the Broncos got the ball back thanks to a muffed punt return by Alex Erickson and Darius Phillips had to come onto the field for Kirkpatrick. On the second play of the drive, Phillips was targeted on a Broncos’ 30-yard touchdown that gave the Broncos a 14-3 lead.
