DENVER -- Broncos rookie wideout Eddie Royal joined Selvin Young and Tony Scheffler on the sideline Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, taking away another option in the team's high-powered offense.
Royal, third in the AFC with 30 receptions, was scratched with a sprained left ankle. Scheffler and Young were out with groin injuries, as was defensive end Ebenezer Ekuban.
Royal injured his ankle in the second half against Tampa Bay last weekend. He has 321 yards receiving and two touchdowns this season.
