ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos waived wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie and released wide receiver River Cracraft from the practice squad on Monday, the team announced.
Wide receiver and 2017 third-round pick Carlos Henderson will take Cracraft’s spot on the practice squad. Henderson was reinstated from the Practice Squad/Suspended list on Monday.
Henderson spent training camp on the team's Reserve/Did Not Report list, but he will now have a chance to work with the Broncos.
Head Coach Vance Joseph said in early September he hopes to see Henderson display maturity during the upcoming season.
“I think for Carlos, it’s more off the field," Joseph said. "I want to see Carlos grow up. I want to see Carlos do NFL things—have great meetings, have great practices, have great days in the weight room. Just do those things first for us. Obviously, the football player Carlos, he’s talented, so that part I don’t worry about. I want him to grow up and become a pro. If he does that, he’ll be fine.”
Denver did not make a corresponding roster move after waiving McKenzie.
The Broncos are able to add another player to their active roster before Sunday’s game against the Raiders.
