Broncos add Lance Ball, Carlton Powell to Practice Squad

New, comments

The Broncos made two pairs of moves with their practice squad roster today, as RB Lance Ball and DT Carlton Powell replaced RB Darius Walker and DE Everette Pedescleaux.

Walker was waived, while Pedescleaux was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury.

Ball is a second-year player who appeared in one game in 2008 for Indianapolis. In the Colts' regular-season finale, Ball took 13 carries for 83 yards, adding 5 yards on 1 reception. He fumbled once (recovered by the Colts). During the 2009 preseason (for the Colts), Ball rushed 35 times for 86 yards (2.5 YPA) and caught 3 passes for 32 yards with zero touchdowns and 1 fumble (recovered by Indianapolis). In addition to his time with Indianapolis, the former Maryland Terp has been a practice-squad member of the Rams and Titans.

Powell was originally drafted by Denver in 2008 (5th Round, #148 overall) but missed the entire season due to an injury to his Achilles tendon. A teammate of Eddie Royal's at Virginia Tech, Powell was waived by the Broncos in September before spending two weeks on the Browns' practice squad.
