Latavius Murray likely inactive for Broncos Thursday night

Denver Broncos new running back Latavius Murray is expected to be inactive on Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Murray was just signed off the Saints' practice squad after Javonte Williams tore his ACL, but he's not expected to make his Broncos debut until Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Melvin Gordon is expected to operate as a "bell cow" back on Thursday night, per Rapoport's colleague James Palmer. Mike Boone will work in a change-of-pace capacity and the Broncos also called up Devine Ozigbo from the practice squad for additional depth.

The Colts have the No. 4 run defense and No. 24 pass defense in numberFire's advanced team rankings, so the Broncos may try to let Russell Wilson cook a little more on Thursday night. Our models project Gordon for 17.2 carries and Boone for 7.6 totes, compared to 32.6 pass attempts for Russ.
