Broncos place C Lloyd Cushenberry III on Reserve/COVID-19 list


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have officially placed center Lloyd Cushenberry III on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Head Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that Cushenberry is vaccinated, which would allow him to return to the active roster after one negative test. Cushenberry has not officially been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Cushenberry has started all 30 of the Broncos' games and played every offensive snap since he was drafted in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

If Cushenberry is unable to play, Fangio said the team could start Austin Schlottmann at center or move rookie Quinn Meinerz to center and play Netane Muti at guard.

The Broncos also signed running back Damarea Crockett to their practice squad and placed tackle Drew Himmelman on the Practice Squad/COVID-19 list.

Crockett has appeared in 11 games for the Broncos this season, primarily as a special teams contributor.
