The Broncos made some minor roster moves today

According to the Denver Broncos, they have signed free agent Safety Josh Bush, and waived tight end Richard Gordon. They also released tight end Arthur Lynch from their Practice Squad.

The Broncos brought back Bush because starting safety T.J. Ward suffered an ankle injury during Sunday night's victory over the New England Patriots.

Bush made the Broncos opening day roster as depth for Ward while he served his one-game suspension during week one. He spent the following three weeks on the Broncos roster only to be released to make room for offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus. If Ward is not able to play on Sunday, look for Bush to serve as the third safety for the Broncos.

Bush has played six years in the league and has played for three teams during his career. During his career, he has played in 40 games and totaled 31 tackles and 1 interception.

To make room for Bush on the roster, the Broncos waived veteran tight end Richard Gordon. The Broncos liked Gordon's blocking potential, but he fell out favor after the team acquired Vernon Davis from the San Francisco 49ers. Gordon is not eligible to sign on to the Broncos Practice Squad.

The Broncos also released tight end Arthur Lynch from their Practice Squad. This leaves the Broncos with an opening at the position, and with two tight ends being cut from the roster, I would look for them to add another tight end to the Practice Squad.
