ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos will be without Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib for their Sunday night showdown with the Oakland Raiders.
Talib was sent for a cortisone injection in his lower back Friday and coach Gary Kubiak said he was optimistic that will help Talib return to the field soon.
Talib missed Denver’s 27-19 win over San Diego last week when his back stiffened during the team’s walkthrough the day before the game.
Bradley Roby started in his place and earned the AFC’s defensive player of the week honors after recording seven tackles, two pass breakups and a pick-6 .
