Broncos vs Raiders gameday inactives: Backups starting along right side of offensive line

New, comments

The Denver Broncos will not have their two starters at right tackles nor their starting right guard, which means Jake Rodgers and Austin Schlottmann will get the nod in Week 17.

The Denver Broncos will have depth issues along the offensive line with Ja’Wuan James, Elijah Wilkinson, and Ron Leary all ruled out for the final game of the season against the Oakland Raiders. In their place will be Austin Schlottmann at right guard and Jake Rodgers at right tackle.

It will come down to how well Drew Lock calls out protections and how much help Rich Scangarello designs in his game plan for those two backup linemen. That is definitely something to watch for in this game.

Meanwhile, the Raiders will be without their starting running back as Josh Jacobs has been dealing with various health issues and will not be active for this final regular season game.
