Broncos put J.D. Walton on IR
Sunday Blitz: Raiders-Broncos Recap
Walton was hurt just before halftime in the Broncos' 37-6 win over Oakland on Sunday when Raiders defensive end Jack Crawford inadvertently crashed into his legs as he was making the tackle on running back Lance Ball.
Walton was replaced by Dan Koppen, who was signed three weeks ago after his release by New England, where he spent nine seasons.
Second-year tight end Virgil Green returned from a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's banned-substances policy. The Broncos have a roster exemption on Green.
