Rains injured his foot during the first day of Training Camp practice. He was an undrafted rookie fighting for a roster spot or a spot on the team's practice squad.
Charles Sweeton is a 6'5", 303lb offensive tackle from Tennessee-Martin. Sweeton went undrafted during the 2015 NFL Draft. He did sign with the Kansas City Chiefs after the draft, but was waived after the team's rookie minicamp.
Sweeton is a longshot to make the Broncos roster, but will provide some extra depth at the offensive tackle position during Training Camp and the preseason.
