ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Ahead of the Broncos' Week 14 game against Detroit, Denver's roster will receive reinforcements as three players return from injured reserve.
Cornerbacks Bryce Callahan and Michael Ojemudia and inside linebacker Micah Kiser have been activated from injured reserve, the team announced Saturday. The Broncos also placed outside linebacker Malik Reed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Callahan had been on injured reserve since suffering a knee injury against Washington in Week 8. He recorded 21 tackles, three tackles for loss, four passes defensed and one sack in the first eight games of the season. Head Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that if Callahan is able to play, he would replace Kyle Fuller as the nickel back when the team goes to its five-defensive-back personnel.
Ojemudia, who has been practicing with the team since late November, has not played in game action since suffering an injury in during a preseason game against Seattle. A 2020 third-round pick by the Broncos, Ojemudia appeared in all 16 games and made 11 starts as a rookie. He recorded 62 tackles, six passes defensed and forced four fumbles.
Kiser, a fourth-year player that the Broncos signed in September after losing starter Josey Jewell to a season-ending pectoral injury, has appeared in five games for the Broncos and largely played on special teams before suffering a groin injury during Denver's Week 7 game against Cleveland.
