Broncos dodge major injuries to Ray, Sanders
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Coach Gary Kubiak says the Broncos dodged major injuries to first-round draft pick Shane Ray and star wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders in their 26-23 overtime win at Cleveland.
Ray has a sprained right MCL and is expected to miss a few weeks. Sanders has a bruised left shoulder but should be back for the showdown against Green Bay on Nov. 1 following both club’s bye week, Kubiak said Monday.
Ray was injured when teammate Derek Wolfe shoved Browns right tackle Mitchell Schwartz into the back of his legs. Sanders was injured trying to make a diving catch at the end of regulation.
Also, inside linebacker Corey Nelson (ankle, knee) is day to day, Kubiak said.
