Not all was good news for the Denver Broncos in Sunday's 37-6 rout of the Oakland Raiders.

The Broncos have likely lost starting center J.D. Walton, who has been an ironman the past two-plus seasons, to a broke ankle. He will likely miss the remainder of the season, reports the Denver Post.

Veteran Dan Koppen came into the game late in the first half after Walton went down and finished up for the Broncos, who face Koppen's old team, the New England Patriots, next week.
