New, comments

The Denver Broncos are getting healthy at the right moment, while the Oakland Raiders have a few key players ailing this week.

The Denver Broncos will have nearly all hands on deck against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. The only player in doubt now is wide receiver Cody Latimer, who is close to being ready. It will all depend on today’s walk through.

Devontae Booker is also close according to head coach Vance Joseph.

“Booker had a great week,” Joseph said of Booker and Ahtyba Rubin. “He’s gotten better each day. We’ll see about ‘Book’ on Sunday. Rubin also had a great week. Obviously, he’s been here now for two weeks, so he’s getting caught up as far as the defensive scheme. So, we’ll see where he is on Sunday.”

The Raiders could be down a couple of starters on Sunday in wide receiver Michael Crabtree who is dealing with a chest injury he suffered last week and cornerback Gareon Conley. Both could play, but are listed as questionable.
