Denver Broncos Injury Report: Virgil Green, Cassius Vaughn Ruled Out

The Denver Broncos have released Friday's injury report:

Out
TE Virgil Green
CB Cassius Vaughn

Questionable
FS Quinton Carter

Probable
RT Orlando Franklin
RB Willis McGahee
TE Julius Thomas

Both TE Virgil Green and CB Cassius Vaughn have been ruled out of Sunday's game after missing practice all week. Vaughn, who returned an interception for a touchdown earlier this year against the San Diego Chargers, has been struggling with a hamstring issue since last week's blowout loss to the Detroit Lions.

Virgil Green, the Broncos 7th round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, continues to struggle with the neck injury he sustained last week.

The biggest injury news continues to be about Willis McGahee, who practiced again Friday and appears likely to start -- or at least play -- this week against the Oakland Raiders. Another important pair of injuries includes starting RT Olrando Franklin and starting FS Quinton Vaughn. Franklin appears poised to start this week, but Carter will probably come down to a game-time decision.
