Slowly but surely, the Denver Broncos are getting healthier. They made several roster changes ahead of their game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
On Saturday, the team announced they would activate cornerback A.J. Bouye off of injured reserve. Bouye’s return will be a huge boost to the secondary as they prepare to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Defensive ends Dre’Mont Jones and DeMarcus Walker were also activated off of injured reserve.
Bouye went down in Week 1, while Jones and Walker in Week 2. The return of all three will be a huge boost to the defense at a most critical time. The team also gets back tight end Noah Fant who missed last week with an ankle injury.
With those moves all happening, the Broncos also made some changes to their practice squad this week. A day after releasing quarterback Blake Bortles, the team put him on their practice squad. They also signed both Timmy Jernigan and Sylvester Williams back to their practice squad after releasing them earlier this week. We might want to keep an eye on De’Vante Bausby as he could return to the practice squad on Sunday.
