As if it isn't bad enough already, the Denver Broncos have lost another running back for the season. Rookie Ryan Torain has torn the ACL in his knee and is expected to be placed on the injured reserve list, joining Michael Pittman, Andre Hall and Anthony Aldridge.
No word yet on who may replace Torain on the depleted depth chart, but starting fullback Peyton Hillis will undoubtedly be asked to shoulder the load along with Selvin Young, who's currently nursing a groin injury.
Fortunately Denver has nine days off before heading to Atlanta to take on the 5-3 Falcons.
