ENGLEWOOD, Colo. —The Broncos have elevated running back LeVante Bellamy and cornerback Kevin Toliver II from their practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, the team announced.
Under new NFL rules, teams are permitted to elevate two players per week from their practice squad to the active roster for game day. The team's active roster then consists of 55 players, and 48 of those players can be active for the game as long as at least eight offensive linemen are active.
After the game, Bellamy and Toliver will be able to revert to the practice squad without being exposed to waivers.
Each player is eligible to go through this process twice. If a team wishes to elevate the player for a third time, they may do so, but that individual would be exposed to waivers before reverting to the practice squad.
Bellamy was elevated for last Sunday's game against the Steelers, as well. He played 14 special teams snaps but did not appear on offense.
This is the first time the Broncos have elevated Toliver. The cornerback played for Head Coach Vic Fangio in Chicago in 2018 before signing with the team's practice squad before Week 1.
