Jack Del Rio says MRIs revealed Knowshon Moreno's sprained right ankle and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's jammed right shoulder are "not significant" injuries.

Del Rio said both players are day-to-day and should practice this week.

Moreno left Gillette Stadium in a walking boot Sunday night after rushing for a career-high 224 yards on 37 carries in Denver's 34-31 overtime loss to the Patriots.

Rodgers-Cromartie was hurt on the final play of the first half, and his absence helped the Patriots overcome a 24-0 halftime deficit.

Del Rio had no update for defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson (hip).

He did say he expects cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) and tight end Julius Thomas (knee) to play this week.
