ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos are set to welcome back a key piece of their offensive line.
Denver activated tackle Garett Bolles from the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced on Thursday.
The Broncos also placed tackle Calvin Anderson on injured reserve.
The Broncos received a roster exemption for Bolles, which means he will not immediately count against the team's 53-man roster.
Bolles was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Nov. 22 and missed the Broncos' Week 12 win over the Chargers. He also missed Weeks 9 and 10 with an ankle injury.
Head Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that he was optimistic about the status of Bolles' ankle.
Anderson, who suffered a knee injury against the Chargers in Week 12, must miss at least three games before he is eligible to return. Fangio said Wednesday he expected Anderson to miss two-to-four weeks with his injury.
