Cassius Vaughn Injury: Denver Broncos CB Questionable To Return After Ankle Injury

The Denver Broncos had another early injury this season. On the kick return after the San Diego Chargers' field goal, cornerback Cassius Vaughn chose to return the ball from inside the endzone. He got knocked up on the play and had to be looked at on the sidelines. After the trainers determined it was an ankle injury, Vaughn had the area taped up and attempted to walk by himself. He wasn't and, according to 850 KOA, he was brought to the locker room for further examination. He is now questionable to return.

The Broncos deactivated Quan Cosby before the game. He has been a returner for the Broncos in the season, but he has not played recently. Earlier in the year, Eric Decker was a punt returner, but he has now transitioned to starting wide receiver. Eddie Royal is in line to take up all the return duties right now.
