Gordon totaled eight carries for 31 yards and five catches for 39 yards in the Broncos' 22-16 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday in Denver. He also fumbled.

Injuries and lack of production continue to be reason for concern this season for Broncos running backs. Starter Javonte Williams sustained a season-ending torn ACL in his right knee in early October.

Third-string running back Chase Edmonds sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 11 and is expected to miss multiple games.

Veteran Latavius Murray, who totaled 72 yards from scrimmage and a score in Week 11, is expected to fill the starting running back role. Marlon Mack is the only other healthy running back on the Broncos roster.

The Broncos (3-7) will face the Carolina Panthers (3-8) at 1 p.m. EST Sunday in Charlotte, N.C.
