ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos on Monday designated offensive lineman Menelik Watson as reserve/injured.
Watson suffered a pec injury during training camp and underwent an MRI on Aug. 16. He first missed practice on Aug. 8.
The Broncos signed Watson to a contract ahead of the 2017 season, and he started seven games at right tackle.
Denver chose to trade for Jared Veldheer this offseason, which left Watson to compete for a role as a backup guard and tackle.
