DENVER (AP) — Kareem Jackson returns from his two-game suspension and is set to step right back into the starting lineup Sunday night when the Denver Broncos host the Minnesota Vikings.

His replacement, P.J. Locke, is inactive for the game with an ankle injury he sustained against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night.

Jackson drew a two-game banishment for an illegal hit on Green Bay tight end Luke Musgrave on Oct. 22. That was the fifth time this season he'd been flagged for unnecessary roughness.

Denver's other inactives are: linebackers Ronnie Perkins, Ben Niemann and Thomas Incoom along with center Alex Forsyth and defensive end Elijah Garcia.

Inactive for the Vikings are: safety Lewis Cine; wide receiver Trishton Jackson; quarterback Jaren Hall; cornerback Akayleb Evans; linebacker Brian Asamoah II; tight end Nick Muse; and tackle Hakeem Adeniji.
