The Denver Broncos have suffered a few key injuries in the win against the New England Patriots. Gary Kubiak is taking no chances with his starting strong safety possibly missing the game.
On Tuesday, the Denver Broncos promoted safety Josh Bush to the active roster in lieu of the T.J. Ward injury. Andrew Mason has stated that there is a good chance that Ward could miss this weekend’s matchup with the San Diego Chargers with an ankle injury.
While Kubiak did mention that Ward’s injury was day-to-day, he is not taking any chances in the event that it is shown that the safety will miss the game.
In order to make room on the roster, the Broncos have waived tight end Richard Gordon, who has mostly been a gameday inactive since he signed with the Broncos. The Broncos also announced that they have released tight end Arthur Lynch from the practice squad.
According to Troy Renck, Richard Gordon is not eligible for the Broncos practice squad, so I project a move to add a player to the practice squad will be made this week.
Bush did start for the Broncos in the season opener against the Ravens. He was on the roster for three games in the 2015 season before getting waived when the Broncos signed Tyler Polumbus.
I believe that the Broncos will be in good shape with Bush on the roster. The team has survived without Ward. Bush did record one interception in the 2014 season finale against the Oakland Raiders.
Bush was with the Buffalo Bills in October, but was released when the Bills signed a kicker to their roster.
It will be interesting to see how Bush does in his second stint with the Broncos. Go Broncos!
