Broncos place Vickerson on IR, add Fua

As expected, the Broncos have placed Kevin Vickerson on IR and replaced him with a veteran free agent.

Denver has signed DT Sione Fua (6-1, 310), a third-year player drafted by Carolina in the third round (97th overall) of the 2011 Draft.

The Stanford alum has 22 total tackles and one forced fumble in 27 career games (12 starts).

Broncos place Moore on short-term IR, sign Huff

The Broncos have placed Rahim Moore on short-term IR following his surgery for lateral compartment syndrome, and filled his roster spot with former Raiders and Ravens safety Michael Huff.

Moore played 30 snaps during Denver's 27-17 win over Kansas City on Sunday night before leaving with what was characterized on NBC as a mysterious leg injury.

He was replaced by Mike Adams, never to return, and underwent surgery Monday morning.

Broncos activate Walton; Moffitt retiring

Denver moved center J.D. Walton to the active roster on Tuesday and placed John Moffitt on the reserve/left squad list.

Walton had resumed practicing on October 16; Moffitt had been inactive for six of the team's eight games and says he's retiring from the NFL at age 27.

Broncos add Bumphis to PS

Following the departure of Tavarres King, the Broncos have signed WR Chad Bumphis to their practice squad.

Bumphis went undrafted out of Mississippi State and signed with Miami, who made him one of their first cuts this summer.

Panthers claim King, ending his Denver saga

Carolina claimed WR Tavarres King off waivers from Denver on Monday. King had been waived to make room for Von Miller, merely days after the Broncos had convinced him to stick around rather than join the NFCN-leading Packers. The 2013 fifth-rounder joins a team that has won three of its last four games; the Panthers cut cornerback D.J. Moore to make room for him.

Good for Tavarres; we wish him well, and hope he's able to take advantage of his new opportunity.

Broncos waive King to make room for Von

Just days after convincing Tavarres King to stay in Denver rather than sign with Green Bay, the Broncos have released their fifth-round wideout. A move was necessary to make room for Von Miller, who is returning from suspension.

King had been on Denver's practice squad and drawn interest from the Packers, who placed WR Randall Cobb on short-term IR this week.

Bucs release Freeman, will pay his salary in full

Unable to find a trade partner after having dragged his name through the mud, Tampa Bay finally did the right thing and released quarterback Josh Freeman on Thursday. Freeman will be paid the balance of his $6.2M salary.

Prior to cutting the cord with their former first-rounder, the Bucs had fined Freeman multiple times and may have leaked word of his presence in the league's drug-testing program, a potential breach of confidentiality.

Patriots, Chargers suffer crushing injuries

Nowhere has it been suggested that the Broncos face stiff competition within their division or conference. Yet, while Denver is two weeks away from getting back Von Miller, and perhaps Champ Bailey before that, two key foes lost crucial defenders yesterday.

New England nose tackle Vince Wilfork reportedly suffered a torn Achilles tendon on Sunday night, while earlier, San Diego linebacker Dwight Freeney (who had visited Dove Valley in March) reportedly tore his quadriceps tendon.

Should Denver try to trade for Jordan Gross?

The NFL's trade deadline is still 4.5 weeks away (4pm ET on Tue, Oct 29), and no team (except for the Browns) is ready to cut bait on 2013.

Of course, trades can occur anytime between now and then, and Robert Mays has a few ideas, including one that would have Denver send a fifth-round pick to Carolina in exchange for left tackle Jordan Gross:

Why the Broncos should pick up the phone: With Ryan Clady done for the year, Denver’s only real weakness appears to be at left tackle. Replacement Chris Clark played very well against Lamarr Houston on Monday night, but Gross is a proven commodity. Denver has the inside track to the Super Bowl right now, and bringing in a proven left tackle as a one-year rental would be a perfect way to keep it. You can replace “Denver” with “Seattle” in that last sentence, and the point stands

Injury Report: Welcome back, Carter

There's only one change on the injury report today, as Tony Carter made a limited return to practice.

Champ Bailey and Joel Dreessen remained limited, while Duke Ihenacho and Paris Lenon did not practice.

Once again, nine Broncos are listed on the injury report but were full participants, while for the Eagles, Jason Peters was a full participant, and Patrick Chung did not practice.
