Broncos 1 game behind Chargers in AFC West

Injury Report: J.D. Walton's season could be over

The Denver Broncos put together a big division win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, but may have lost an important piece of their offensive line for a long time during the process.

Starting center J.D. Walton suffered what appeared to be a fractured left ankle early in the game. Walton needed to be helped off the field with assistance, and a fractured could end his season. Walton was the only player to suffer a major injury for the Broncos during the Raiders game.

Walton is not the only Bronco to suffer major injury news recently, though. On Saturday, the Broncos put safety Quinton Carter on Injured Reserve with a knee injury.

Beyond those two, the Broncos official injury report is populated mostly with minor injuries -- everyone on it except for wide receiver Matthew Willis (hamstring) practiced in some capacity prior to the win on Sunday.

Raiders Vs. Broncos inactives

Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is again on the inactive list for today's game against the Oakland Raiders after first appearing on the list last week against the Houston Texans. He'll be joined by guard Chris Kuper, defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, quarterback Caleb Hanie, receiver Matthew Willis, linebacker Nate Irving and center C.J. Davis.

The Raiders have listed backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor, cornerback Shawntae Spencer, tackle Khalif Barnes, guard Lucas Nix, tight end Richard Gordon, receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and defensive end Andre Carter as their inactives for Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff in Denver.

Moreno, the Broncos' backup running back to Willis McGahee, fell out of favor and has been replaced by rookie Ronnie Hillman.

Heyward-Bey was hospitalized after a vicious hit last week, and he's been ruled out with a concussion. Gordon will be missed as a tight end and special teams player for the Raiders and their multiple tight end sets.

Oakland signed Carter to the roster this past week to add another body to a struggling defensive front.
