Broncos Add Wide Receiver Goodwin to Roster; Larsen to IR

New, comments

The Denver Broncos have signed wide receiver D'Andre Goodwin from their practice squad and placed fullback Spencer Larsen on their injured reserve.

Goodwin and Tim Tebow showed a good rapport in the preseason during their main game together. Goodwin went for three receptions and 49-yards in the final preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Larsen went down Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs with a knee injury. The Broncos don't have a true fullback on the roster to replace him.

Denver replaced Goodwin on the practice squad with wide receiver Tim Toone who spent 2011 on the Buffalo Bills practice squad and 2010 on the Detroit Lions practice squad after being drafted by them in the seventh round.
