Broncos to bring back Shiloh Keo; waive Kyle Peko


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --Shiloh Keo will return to the Broncos' roster.

After releasing him at the end of his two-game suspension to open the regular season, the Broncos will bring back the veteran safety, providing additional depth at a position where rookies Justin Simmons and Will Parks handled the reserve work the last two weeks.

To make room for Keo, the Broncos waived nose tackle Kyle Peko.

Keo joined the Broncos last December and provided veteran depth during the Broncos' push to the postseason. He also played a vital role on special teams, serving as a fill-in punt returner and recovering the on-side kickoff that clinched the Broncos' AFC Championship Game win over the New England Patriots.

Peko was inactive for both of the Broncos' first two regular-season games after making the 53-man roster at the Sep. 3 deadline. The Oregon State product was the only undrafted rookie to make the roster out of camp after notching two tackles and playing 65 snaps during the preseason.

The 6-foot-1, 305-pounder was the only third-team defensive lineman on the Broncos' roster. He worked at all three spots along the defensive line during training camp and the preseason. His cousin Domata is a starting defensive tackle for the Bengals, who the Broncos face Sunday.
