Broncos at Raiders injury updates: Four starters did not participate in practice on Wednesday

New, comments

Aqib Talib, Shane Ray, Adam Gotsis, and Emmanuel Sanders were all held out of practice on Wednesday due to injury.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are a bit dinged up at several key positions heading into their game against the Oakland Raiders this weekend.

Cornerback Aqib Talib is nursing a shoulder injury, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is still working through a lingering ankle injury, while Shane Ray now has an ankle injury to go along with his still-healing wrist. Adam Gotsis is also dealing with an ankle injury. That’s a lot of starters not at 100% going into this next game.

The Raiders had a few guys that didn’t participate either, but more for veteran rest day with both Bruce Irvin and Khalil Mack getting the day off.
