As expected, Denver guard Chris Kuper (ankle) and cornerback Tracy Porter (illness) are out for Sunday’s game at Carolina. They didn’t practice all week. Kuper was hurt Sunday at Cincinnati, and this will be Porter’s fourth straight game he has missed because of complications after having a seizure in August.
We’ll have an update on Oakland later Friday. But running back Darren McFadden is expected to be out with a high ankle sprain. He missed practice all week.
