Raiders vs. Broncos inactives: Andre Carter, Darius Heyward-Bey sit against Denver

Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is again on the inactive list for today's game against the Oakland Raiders after first appearing on the list last week against the Houston Texans. He'll be joined by guard Chris Kuper, defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, quarterback Caleb Hanie, receiver Matthew Willis, linebacker Nate Irving and center C.J. Davis.

The Raiders have listed backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor, cornerback Shawntae Spencer, tackle Khalif Barnes, guard Lucas Nix, tight end Richard Gordon, receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and defensive end Andre Carter as their inactives for Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff in Denver.

Moreno, the Broncos' backup running back to Willis McGahee, fell out of favor and has been replaced by rookie Ronnie Hillman.

Heyward-Bey was hospitalized after a vicious hit last week, and he's been ruled out with a concussion. Gordon will be missed as a tight end and special teams player for the Raiders and their multiple tight end sets.

Oakland signed Carter to the roster this past week to add another body to a struggling defensive front.
