Broncos’ Hillis likely to start vs. Raiders

Denver RB Selvin Young is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the Raiders, making it likely that converted fullback Peyton Hillis will see his second consecutive start for a Broncos team depleted at the running back position.

Hillis recorded 44 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries vs. the Falcons last week.
