Running back Devontae Booker set to make season debut with Broncos

Almost every member of the Raiders sat during the national anthem at their game last week. He can run, he has the balance and again, he has the power.
"Oh, you've just got to get him on the ground", said Miller, laughing because that's not so easy. "We have to have gap control". "We have a big O-line and good running backs".
The Denver Broncos also look for a 3-1 start to the National Football League season with a nice victory here. He was limited to just one reception (three targets) and seven yards last week against the Washington Redskins, having exploded the week prior against the New York Jets for a three-TD performance.
The statement comes a few days after Broncos executive John Elway - who led Denver to victory in Super Bowl XXXII in January 1998 - said he believes in standing for the anthem.
Add outside linebackers Von Miller and Shaq Barrett pinching the edges and keeping the backs from bouncing outside. In four meetings against the Broncos as teammates, Cooper and Crabtree have averaged a combined 72.3 yards receiving per game with just one touchdown overall.
The Raiders couldn't do much against Denver's fortified front seven that also stuffed Melvin Gordon, Ezekiel Eliott and LeSean McCoy.
Raiders fans are on the edge of their seats as Derek Carr exited the Raiders-Broncos game. Despite 31 attempts in the game against Washington, Carr only threw for 118 yards, giving up two interceptions and four sacks for -22 yards. His quarterback rating of 52.7 was the second lowest of his career ahead of only a 50.5 mark in his rookie year of 2014 in 52-0 loss to the then-St.
He was replaced in the game by E.J Manuel. The upgrades to the offensive line and Anderson's commitment to being in better condition - which led him to take up distance cycling in the offseason - have helped him rediscover his burst.
"He did a good job, a really good job", tight end Jared Cook said. For those who can not get in front of a screen for the game, head over to either team's homepage to check out radio listings. Not entirely sure what the reason is, but it is something that they need to fix going forward.
