ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have activated running back Mike Boone from the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced Tuesday.
Boone was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Dec. 10 and missed the team's games against the Lions and Bengals. The Broncos received a roster exemption for Boone, which means he will not immediately count against the 53-man roster. Boone carried the ball four times for 35 yards and caught one pass for 19 yards in his last action.
Denver also placed fullback/tight end Andrew Beck on injured reserve and waived running back Damarea Crockett. Head Coach Vic Fangio previously disclosed that Beck had suffered an elbow injury. Beck must miss the next three games, which means his season is over unless the Broncos make the playoffs.
The Broncos also activated wide receiver Seth Williams from the Practice Squad/COVID-19 list and signed a pair of players to the practice squad in quarterback Anthony Gordon and tight end Caleb Wilson. Gordon has not appeared in a regular-season game, but he spent time in the offseason with the Chiefs after going undrafted in 2020. Wilson previously spent a brief stint on the Broncos' practice squad this year.
Denver released wide receiver De'Mornay Pierson-El, outside linebacker Pita Taumoepenu, tackle Casey Tucker and running back Kerrith Whyte Jr. from their practice squad.
