In a season in which the Denver Broncos have lost a slew of running backs for the season due to injury, Sunday’s loss to the Bills saw two more tailback go down for the rest of the year, according to the Denver Post.
Selvin Young ruptured a disk in his neck, and P.J. Pope popped a hamstring. Both will be placed on injured reserve.
In all, seven running backs have been placed on IR by the Broncos — Young, Pope, Andre Hall, Ryan Torain, Michael Pittman, Peyton Hillis, and Anthony Alridge.
Coach Mike Shanahan said on Monday that Alex Haynes and Cory Boyd will be re-signed to the active roster.
So, in other words, Boyd is back . . . back like cooked crack.
