Broncos sign RB Kerrith Whyte Jr., T Adrian Ealy to practice squad


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have added a pair of offensive players to their practice squad.

Denver signed running back Kerrith Whyte Jr. and tackle Adrian Ealy to the practice squad, the team announced Tuesday.

The Broncos released linebacker Curtis Robinson from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Whyte entered the NFL as a seventh-round pick in 2019 with the Bears, and he was selected with a pick that originally belonged to the Broncos before they traded it to the Eagles, who dealt it to the Bears.

Whyte has appeared in six career games, rushing for 122 yards on 24 carries for the Steelers in 2019. He spent time with the Bills, Jaguars and Packers in 2021.

Ealy, a 6-foot-6, 321-pound rookie, competed with the Ravens after going undrafted and spent time on their practice squad this season. He missed six weeks of the season after being suspended for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing substance policy, but he has finished serving his suspension. Ealy was a second-team All-Big 12 selection during his final season at Oklahoma.

Denver also protected tackle Quinn Bailey, running back Damarea Crockett and wide receiver Seth Williams on their practice squad this week. Bailey, who was elevated for Sunday's game against the Chargers, entered the game after Calvin Anderson's injury and earned a game ball for his performance.
