A week after an embarrassing loss to the Raiders, the Broncos' defense will get some reinforcements in Week Eight.

FS Brian Dawkins is expected to return to the Denver lineup for the team's game Sunday vs. the 49ers in London. Dawkins has missed the previous two games with a knee injury, but the eight-time Pro Bowler is active and in uniform on Sunday.

The way we see it

Dawkins is still a tough defender who will help the Broncos in pass coverage and run defense. His return to the lineup should help a unit that allowed 59 points and 508 total yards in Week Seven.
