Ryan Torain's goal was to return from a broken elbow tonight in New England.
That's not going to happen. Torain is inactive and won't play.
He is now focused on returning when Denver comes off its bye Nov. 2 against Miami. There are no guarantees that Torain will play against the Dolphins but he is targeting that game.
Torain started practicing last week or the first time since he broke his elbow in early August in training camp. Torain was a training camp star and he was close to winning the tailback job.
The fifth-round pick from Arizona State is a big, bruising back that fits Denver's run style well.
The team is excited to have him for the stretch run and if Torain has anything to do with it the stretch run will start in Denver's next game.
