According to the Denver Broncos, they announced that they have made a handful of roster moves ahead of their season finale game vs. the Raiders. They placed right tackle Mike McGlinchey on the injured reserve which opened up a roster spot for undrafted rookie Alex Palczewski who is being activated off the injured reserve. They also signed undrafted rookie cornerback Art Green to the active roster and will be elevating Devon Key off the practice squad for the finale.
Key is being elevated because they placed safety Delarrin Turner-Yell on the injured reserve earlier in the week after he suffered an ACL injury during last weekend’s victory over the Chargers.
Palczewski signed as an undrafted free agent this offseason and made some noise this summer. He was pushing for a roster spot but a hand injury during the preseason finale landed him on the injured reserve. He stayed there until just before Christmas when the Broncos designated him to return and now with McGlinchey out for the finale, he’ll serve as the swing tackle for this game. He impressed coaches this summer and could be a player to watch this offseason.
Cornerback Art Green is another undrafted free agent who the Broncos signed this offseason and landed on the practice squad. Now, he’ll be activated for the finale and have a chance to show coaches he deserves to be on the active roster moving forward. He’s a 6’1 cornerback who runs a 4.3 40-time. So, he has the size and athletic traits you look for so hopefully he can be developed into a solid cornerback for the Broncos.
As for Key, he will provide some much-needed depth at a banged-up safety position. With Delarrin Turner-Yell on the injured reserve, he will provide some depth behind starters Justin Simmons and P.J. Locke.
