The Broncos announced 22 transactions Saturday as the team has reached the NFL-mandated 53-player roster limit.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The roster is set -- for now.

After 22 transactions, the Broncos have reached the league-mandated, 53-player limit with just five days remaining until their season kicks off against Baltimore.

Saturday, the team announced that running back Lance Ball, center/guard C.J. Davis, running back Jeremiah Johnson, center/guard Ryan Lilja and tight end Jake O'Connell were released as vested veterans.

In addition, linebackers Stewart Bradley and Lerentee McCray and defensive end Quanterus Smith were placed on injured reserve.

Linebacker Von Miller was designated as reserve/suspended and will not count against the active roster during the first six weeks of the season.

Three 2013 NFL Draft picks were included in the weekend's transactions -- King (fifth round) and Painter (sixth round) were waived, while Smith (fifth round) will miss the season with an injury.
