Watch Now:

Mims was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a rib injury, Ryan McFadden of The Denver Post reports.

Mims has moved up from the No. 4 receiver role to the No. 3 spot on the depth chart in terms of playing time as the season has rolled along, but he actually had more luck putting up numbers earlier in his rookie campaign when he was playing fewer than 20 snaps each week. He had four catches of 38-plus yards in his first four games -- plus a kick return touchdown -- and has since failed to record a reception spanning more than 16 yards. The ability to practice in any capacity Wednesday suggests Mims should be able to face the Chargers this Sunday, but there's not much reason to expect a blowup performance.
