Broncos and Raiders injury report: Aqib Talib a game time decision?

New, comments

Here is your Thursday injury report for the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

After sitting out last weekend's game against the San Diego Chargers, All-Pro cornerback Aqib Talib is in danger of missing his second consecutive game because of a lower back injury.

NFL Network's James Palmer is reporting that Talib "might play" but will likely be a game-time decision for the Broncos on Sunday Night.

Last week, Bradley Roby and Lorenzo Doss replaced Talib and Webster in the lineup nicely, but this week they face a bigger challenge in Derek Carr and the explosive Oakland Raiders offense. So being without two of your top corners could prove to be a problem for the Broncos defense this weekend.

Center Matt Paradis continues to miss practice with a hip injury, but he started and played through the injury last week so I'm not all that concerned about his status for this weekend.

In some more positive news, inside linebacker, Brandon Marshall continues to work his way back from a hamstring injury by putting in his second straight limited practice. He seems like another game-time decision for the Broncos, but putting in a full practice on Friday could really help his chances.

The only other noteworthy injury update was left tackle Russell Okung being added to the list, but thankfully it was a non-injury related reason. So he should be a-okay for Sunday Night's game.
