Broncos' Ronnie Hillman expected to miss two weeks with sprained foot
Monday November 10th, 2014

Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman will be out at least two weeks after spraining his left foot in Sunday's 41-17 victory over the Oakland Raiders, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports.

Broncos coach John Fox confirmed the injury to reporters on Monday, but according to Klis, "only said Hillman was day-to-day," and did not give a timeline for his return.

According to Klis, Hillman sustained the injury early in the game while attempting to catch a pass, but returned to the game after he had his ankle taped.

In seven games this season, Hillman has run 91 times for 378 yards and three touchdowns. In Sunday's game, Broncos running back C.J. Anderson ran for 90 yards and turned a short pass from quarterback Peyton Manning into a 51-yard touchdown.

Running back Montee Ball started the first four games of the season for the Broncos, but left the team's Week 5 victory over the Arizona Cardinals with a strained groin. At the time, it was reported that Ball could miss up to three weeks, but including Sunday's game, he has missed five.

Last WednesdayBall practiced for the first time since getting injured. Ball also missed two weeks in the preseason after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.​

The Broncos (7-2) play the St. Louis Rams (3-6) on Sunday.
