Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
The Broncos signed receiver Quan Cosby to the 53-man roster to help their injured receiver group. Cosby was previously with Cincinnati. Denver receiver Brandon Lloyd and Eddie Royal have groin injuries. Lloyd missed Sunday’s game and his status for this week’s game at Tennessee is not yet known. Royal is out for 2-4 weeks.
- Denver running back Jeremiah Johnson was cut. He was promoted from the practice squad last week and will likely be headed back there. The Broncos did add tight end John Nalbone to the practice squad. He finished last year there.
- The Broncos visited with veteran safety Darren Sharper on Tuesday. He was not signed. If Denver feels the need for a safety later in the season, he could be an option. He played for Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen while they were with the Saints.
- The Chargers need to sell 4,600 seats to Sunday’s game against Kansas City to avoid a local television blackout. The Chiefs’ terrible start isn’t helping ticket sales, I’m sure.
- Chiefs’ star safety Eric Berry will have surgery to repair his torn ACL in his knee this week. He suffered the season-ending injury in Week 1.
