Denver Broncos: Tyrique Jarrett likely to get called up again
The Denver Broncos have made a number of call-ups from their practice squad this season, and defensive lineman Tyrique Jarrett could be called up again…
The Denver Broncos have been calling up players from the practice squad left and right this season, which is both a shame due to injuries on the roster, but also a testament to their fine scouting and player development.
Tyrique Jarrett was a player that showed in the preseason and throughout training camp that he’s capable to play in the NFL, at least on a rotational basis, and he could be getting his second call-up to the Broncos’ active roster very soon.
The Broncos have had a number of injuries on their defensive line this season. We saw this team absolutely dominate in the trenches in 2015, and a major reason why they were able to do that — despite a four-game suspension at the start of the year for Derek Wolfe — was depth and health up front.

They have not been able to stay fully healthy on the defensive line the past two seasons, perhaps a foolish expectation anyway. We talked on Tuesday night about what Derek Wolfe said in a recent radio appearance about his latest neck injury. It sounds extremely serious and dangerous for him to keep playing, definitely this season if not permanently.
Domata Peko also suffered an injury, bringing his incredible start streak to an end. The Broncos have also placed Billy Winn and Jared Crick on injured reserve already this season, paving the way for players like Kyle Peko and now Tyrique Jarrett to be added to the 53-man roster.
Again, this is a testament both to scouting and the nature of injuries in the NFL. The Broncos have done a good job of identifying players after the draft that can actually play, and they don’t just put bodies on the practice squad. That group is really an extension of the roster, and they prove that year after year.
