The Broncos’ weekly-on-weekly Tuesday roster churn continued with four moves.
In injured reserve were receiver KJ Hamler (torn ACL) and linebacker Jonas Griffith (hamstring), both of whom suffered injuries in Sunday’s 26-0 win over the New York Jets.
Hamler is done for the season, but the Broncos expect Griffith to miss out on the mandatory three games to play again this year.
Taking two roster spots were quarterback Brett Rippian from the practice squad and receiver David Moore from the Las Vegas practice squad.
The promotion of Rypion with no reported injuries to Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Locke is seen as a sign that another NFL team is looking to add Rypion to its 53-man roster. Rypien has appeared in two regular season games – the final series of defeats from Tampa Bay last year and the start of a win over the New York Jets four days later.
Moore, 26, played 47 games (14 starts) for Seattle from 2018-20, with a total of 78 catches, 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns. Moore signed a three-year contract with Carolina during the off-season (guaranteed $1.25 million), but was cut after camp due to the emergence of rookie Teres Marshall.
Moore spent three weeks in the Raiders’ practice squad. He also has 22 punt returns for an 8.5-yard average.
Griffith was acquired via trade from San Francisco on August 31 with a 2022 seventh-round pick for a sixth-round pick in ’22 and a seventh-round pick in ’23. He played 36 special teams snaps before his injury.
