Broncos promote WR Nathan Palmer
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have promoted wide receiver Nathan Palmer from their practice squad to take the place of suspended slot receiver Wes Welker.
The Broncos also signed guard Ryan Miller to their practice squad. Palmer and Miller were among the final cuts last weekend.
Palmer is a second-year pro who was on Denver’s practice squad at the end of last season. He played in all four preseason games and caught one pass for 7 yards.
Miller also is in his second NFL season. The Colorado native played eight games as a rookie for Cleveland in 2012.
Earlier this week, the Broncos signed long snapper Kevin McDermott to their practice squad after guard Vinston Painter was signed to the Browns’ active roster.
