TE Richard Quinn Clears Waivers; DT Ty Warren Out 3-4 Months

#Broncos TE Richard Quinn has officially cleared waivers and been placed on the team's injured reserve list.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

By clearing waivers Quinn will now be placed on Denver's injured Reserve, joining rookies Mario Fannin, Mark Dell and Derek Domino.  Quinn's injured knee wasn't giving him a chance to be evaluated in camp, so the team took a chance on waivers to try and clear the roster spot for the next guy in line.  Quinn's cap hit for the year is approximately $758k.

DT Ty Warren also had surgery on his torn triceps, and is expected to be out 3-4 months, or until approximately that last quarter of the season.

"It will be kind of a week-to-week rehab, and it will probably be anywhere between three and four months," Fox said. "Everybody heals differently, and they've got to stay in shape and all those things they have to do to come back and play football, so it'll be week-to-week."

The Broncos could either choose to IR Warren or leave him on the active roster.  Expect the Broncos to leave Warren on the active roster while he rehabs.  His $2.75mil cap hit can't help the Broncos on IR, and the timetable places him squarely in the 12-16 week range, so they don't gain much by placing him on IR at this point.
