Update: Mike Boone has been ruled out with an ankle injury. Melvin Gordon and Latavius Murray have been splitting work with him out.
Mike Boone is questionable to return with an ankle injury, according to the Broncos.— Aric DiLalla (@AricDiLalla) October 23, 2022
Before leaving with the injury, Boone led the Broncos in rushing yards with 23 over four carries, just ahead of Melvin Gordon III. The Broncos are playing without quarterback Russell Wilson today as he works through a hamstring injury. Backup Brett Rypien is filling in.
Boone has added meaningful yardage in just two games this season before this weekend. He had 20 against the Raiders and 38 against the Colts, and was held to a single yard in a single carry by the Chargers last week. Between Javonte Williams’ placement on on the injured reserve list and Gordon underperforming on the field this season, Boone has seen plenty of action for the Broncos.
RB Latavius Murray is also getting in snaps today, and Denver will lean on him in Boone’s absence.
