ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have designated offensive lineman Patrick Morris as Practice Squad Reserve/Injured.
Morris suffered an arm injury during the final snap of Sunday's game against the Chargers as he appeared to be twisted to the ground by a Los Angeles player after the play was over. Morris appeared in the game as a standard elevation from the practice squad and reverted back to the practice squad after the game.
With the designation, Morris will not count against the team's 16-player practice squad limit.
Morris played five special teams snaps against the Chargers and also appeared in two games for the Broncos last season.
Denver also designated linebacker Mark Barron and running back LeVante Bellamy for return from injured reserve. The move begins a 21-day window — which began when they returned to practice on Nov. 5 — for Barron and Bellamy to be activated to the 53-man roster. Both players currently remain on IR.
Barron has not appeared in a game this season and suffered a hamstring injury during training camp, while Bellamy injured his hamstring in practice earlier this season.
