The Denver Broncos listed eight players as out for Sunday’s matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers and they’ve had to raid their practice squad accordingly to field a full roster.
On Saturday, the Broncos elevated interior offensive lineman Dillon Day from the practice squad to the 53-man roster, according to a report from Mike Klis of 9News in Denver. That makes Day the fourth practice squad player activated this week.
Day joins wide receiver Hunter Sharp, linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams and offensive tackle Elijah Wilkinson on the 53-man roster. The Broncos will be missing Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer, Isaiah McKenzie, Donald Stephenson, Menelik Watson, Billy Turner, Corey Nelson and Paxton Lynch on Sunday.
Everybody except Lynch, who was injured in the preseason, went down in last week’s loss to the New York Giants, adding literal injury to insult. Nelson even had to be placed on the injured reserve.
Day has been paying his dues on the practice squad for the better part of 2 1/2 seasons now. He played collegiately at Mississippi State and was signed by the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2015.
He’s spent his entire career with the Broncos but this will be his first appearance on the team’s 53-man roster.
