Broncos' Chase Edmonds dealing with high ankle sprain

Denver Broncos running back Chase Edmonds reportedly suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

What It Means:

Edmonds handled two carries in the first quarter in Week 11 before suffering his injury, and was unable to return to the contest. The NFL's Tom Pelissero reports that the journeyman back suffered a high ankle sprain, meaning he is now in jeopardy of missing several weeks. The team also waived veteran back Melvin Gordon earlier today, meaning Latavius Murray could become a workhorse back as soon as Week 12.

Murray drew a team-high 17 carries Sunday, but only took them for 49 yards against the Raiders' struggling defense. On the bright side, he did manage to find the end zone, and caught all four of his targets for 23 more yards. The Broncos' offense has been dysfunctional all season, but Murray should be projected for a high volume of touches going forward without Gordon and Edmonds.
