Broncos expected to lose another RB

For the fourth time this season, Denver is expected to place a running back on injured reserve.

This time, rookie running back Ryan Torain has been lost with what is thought to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Torain will undergo more testing this weekend but the prognosis is not good.

The running back who was being asked to replace Michael Pittman and Andre Hall — who went on injured reserve last week — probably now will join them and Anthony Aldridge, who went on IR after the preseason. He hurt his left knee during the second quarter of Thursday night’s dramatic come-from-behind victory over Cleveland.

The shame of it for Denver is that Torain was effective in the first half. He had 12 rushes for 68 yards (5.7 avg., 19-yard long), with one touchdown before leaving the game.
