Kapri Bibbs gave the Broncos the spark they needed out of the backfield after four punts to open the game here Sunday. Back-to-back first downs on runs of 24 and 13 yards by Bibbs led to Denver’s first and only touchdown, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post reports.
Bibbs was headed toward the best overall game of his career before sustaining a left ankle injury after being tackled on a short second quarter rush. After the game, Bibbs said he suffered a high ankle sprain. He hobbled in the locker room with his ankle wrapped heavily.
Bibbs appeared to be the only bright spot for the offense, which had a dismal day. He led the team with 49 rushing yards on just five carries. Starting running back Devontae Booker had 18 carries for 35 yards and a touchdown.
“It was going to be a real good day,” Bibbs said. “I can bring a lot to this team. I can help this team a lot and that’s all I want to do.”
Bibbs said he was hopeful for a quick return. Typically, high ankle sprains take longer to heal than other ankle sprains.
