The Broncos will be without running back Montee Ball for their Nov. 30 game against the Chiefs in Kansas City, according to the Denver Post.

Ball restrained his groin in Sunday’s Broncos loss at St. Louis and will miss two to three weeks, the Post reported, citing two anonymous NFL sources. Another Denver running back, Ronnie Hillman, is expected to miss the Broncos’ game Sunday against Miami because of a midfoot injury, according to the Post. There’s no word on whether he’ll return for the Chiefs game.

But tight end Julius Thomas, who missed the final three quarters at St. Louis following an ankle sprain, has not been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Miami.
