According to the official twitter source of the Denver Broncos, the team has released running back Jeremiah Johnson. Jeremiah Johnson was signed to the Broncos practice squad in December of 2010. He had some flashes of ability in the pre-season and even though being waived on cut day, he was signed as the only running back on the Broncos practice squad.
Johnson was made active by the team after Knowshon Moreno had to miss last weeks game. Johnson being waived is a good sign that Knowshon Moreno could be ready to go for this Sunday. That being said, the Broncos have also been trying out other running backs today.
With the waive of Jeremiah Johnson, the Broncos signed receiver Quan Cosby to add to a very depleted receiving core. With Eddie Royal already injured for the next several weeks, Cosby could make an immediate impact.
Cosby is a 28 year old 5'9, 180 pound receiver. He played in all 16 games for the Bengals in 2010 with 0 starts. That size makes him comparable to Eddie Royal and that is the slot he will most likely fill. Cosby was used a returner in Cincinnati.
If Brandon Lloyd is back this Sunday, it would add the a receiving core that would be Brandon Lloyd, Quan Cosby, Eric Decker, Matthew Willis.
The Broncos also signed TE John Nalbone to the practice squad..
