Orlando Franklin out with concussion

DENVER (AP) — Broncos left guard Orlando Franklin has left the game with a concussion Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

He was replaced by Ben Garland. The Denver offensive line has paved the way for three rushing TDs by tailback C.J. Anderson.

Franklin has started every game this season as he moved over to the left side after playing right tackle in 2013. He was a second-round pick in the 2011 draft out of Miami.

Oakland defensive end C.J. Wilson left the game in the first half with a hand injury. His return was questionable.

Veteran defensive back Charles Woodson hobbled off twice — once holding his right arm — but returned to the field each time.
