The Denver Broncos defeated their division rival Oakland Raiders by a score of 37-21. The Broncos didn't escape the injury bug though.
Tony Carter is not putting weight on his right leg. He's helped by team trainers to the bench area.— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) September 24, 2013
UPDATE: Tony Carter actually walking around with the walking boot in his hand. Can't be that bad.— Vic Lombardi (@VicLombardi) September 24, 2013
Tony Carter hurt his ankle on a punt return play. It didn't look good though. It's good news that Carter is walking around without the walking boot. If he does miss anytime, rookie Kayvon Webster will step in for him.
Duke Ihenacho has been ruled out (ankle) but is still on the sideline, standing w/ coaches & fellow defensive players.— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) September 24, 2013
Ihenacho appears to be moving around fine in #Broncos locker room— Raj Sharan (@Raj_Sharan) September 24, 2013
Duke left the game with a ankle injury again this weekend. He suffered an ankle injury last week, no indication yet on whether or not this is related or not. As Mason stated in the tweet, he never left the sideline, so It didnt seem serious.
Broncos RT Orlando Franklin getting his left upper arm/shoulder/chest checked out on the sideline.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) September 24, 2013
Equipment staff is putting some sort of brace on Orlando Franklin's right shoulder while defense is on the field.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) September 24, 2013
Franklin was getting his shoulder looked at during the game. He didn't seem to miss any time because of the injury, and nothing has been said after the game. It's something to keep your eye on during the week though.
Stay tuned to MHR with more injury updates If or when they're released
Ihenacho, ankle, just a tweak of the previous injury; Carter, ankle, severity not announced. RT @Skotty_Payne: any injury updates?— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) September 24, 2013
Those seem like the only two injuries the Broncos suffered after tonights game. I'll keep you posted
