Broncos inactives against Raiders

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Denver Broncos' game-day inactives Sunday included running back Montee Ball and right tackle Paul Cornick.

Ball, who practiced on a limited basis this past week, may have a chance to play next Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Cornick practiced only on Wednesday and he was limited in that practice.

He was held out both Thursday and Friday. The Broncos were slated to move him out of the starting lineup even if Cornick had not been injured.

Linebacker Nate Irving, who suffered a sprained right MCL against the New England Patriots last Sunday and expected to miss several weeks, was also among the inactives.

The rest of the Broncos' inactives against the Raiders are: RB Kapri Bibbs, CB Tony Carter, TE Virgil Green and T Michael Schofield.
