This is the third time this season the Broncos have waived Peko. They did it once on Sept. 6 and brought him back the next day.
Peko was waived again on Sept. 9, but the Broncos brought him back on Sept. 11.
He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and spent most of the year on the practice squad. When the Broncos signed Peko back the second time he was originally placed on the practice squad, but was promoted to the 53-man roster on Sept. 16.
He is also the cousin of starting nose tackle Domata Peko, whom the Broncos signed as a free agent during the offseason.
Injuries have forced them to make several moves heading into their Week 7 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. They will be without linebacker Corey Nelson, wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders, Isaiah Mckenzie, and Cody Latimer, along with offensive linemen Billy Turner, Donald Stephenson and Menelik Watson.
The Broncos had to bring up four players from their practice squad to fill out the roster. Those players are offensive linemen Dillon Day, and Elijah Wilkinson, along with linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams and wide receiver Hunter Sharp.
