Broncos place A.J. Bouye on injured reserve


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have placed cornerback A.J. Bouye on injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday.

Bouye suffered a shoulder injury on Monday night against the Titans while in coverage against Corey Davis.

Under the NFL's new injured reserve rules, Bouye will be eligible to return to the active roster after three weeks. That would make him eligible as soon as the Broncos' Week 5 game against New England.

There is no limit in 2020 for how many players a team can activate off injured reserve.

In Bouye's absence, the Broncos plan to use the cornerback lineup that they featured to end "Monday Night Football," Head Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday. That lineup would include Bryce Callahan and Michael Ojemudia at the outside cornerback spots and undrafted rookie Essang Bassey at the slot cornerback position.

The Broncos on Wednesday promoted De'Vante Bausby from the practice squad to the active roster, and he joins a group that also includes Davontae Harris and Duke Dawson Jr.

The Broncos' active roster sits at 52 players following Bouye's move to IR.
