UPDATE: Denver cut offensive lineman Dylan Gandy to make room for Chad Mustard.

With Tony Scheffler being injured Sunday, the Broncos are expected to re-sign tight end Chad Mustard this week. Scheffler suffered a left groin injury in Denver's 16-13 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Mustard has been with Denver on and off for the past season. He is more of a blocking tight end. With Mustard coming in, the Broncos will have to release a player from the 53-man roster.

It is not known at this point how long Scheffler will be out. Scheffler told reporters in Denver's locker room today he doesn't believe the injury is overly serious. But he did say he doesn't think he will play against visiting Jacksonville on Sunday.
