NFL Network’s Adam Schefter reports that Michael Pittman, who is listed as questionable, will start against the Dolphins. However, rookie Ryan Torain will see his share of the carries in his regular-season debut.
Michael Pittman has 88 scrimmage yards in the first half against Jacksonville. With Selvin Young out of action and Ryan Torain still sidelined with an injured elbow, the veteran appears to have put a firm grip on the prominent backfield role in Denver.
Broncos coach Mike Shanahan has ruled out Selvin Young for Sunday’s game against Jacksonville because of a groin injury. Shanahan also agreed with a reporter earlier in the week who asked him if Michael Pittman could see more carries going forward.
