ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos could soon regain a starter in their secondary.
Denver designated cornerback Bryce Callahan for return from injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday.
Callahan is eligible to practice with the team, and the team will have 21 days to decide whether to activate him to the 53-man roster. If the team activates him, he could play as early as this weekend against the Lions.
The Broncos' starting slot cornerback suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of Denver's Week 8 game against the Washington Football Team. Callahan was in coverage when his leg planted awkwardly into the ground. He missed the last four games with the injury.
Prior to his injury, Callahan recorded four passes defensed, a sack, 21 tackles and three tackles for loss in eight games.
