Mike Boone, RB (DEN)

On track to play

Boone (quadriceps) was activated off injured reserve Saturday and is expected to play Sunday against the Raiders, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

It'll be interesting to see how much playing time Boone syphons away from Melvin Gordon (hip) and Javonte Williams given the duo has operated in a 55-45 split to date. Signed this offseason as a change-of-pace option, Boone figures to be more of a reserve depth piece unless one of the aforementioned players suffers an injury.
