Just out of Dove Valley: The Denver Broncos placed second year wide receiver Kenny McKinley and third season safety Josh Barrett on injured reserve.

McKinley went down with a knee injury and Barrett suffered a shoulder injury, both similar if not identical to the injuries the two suffered in 2009.

McKinley was expected to compete for the third spot in the Broncos rotation at wide receiver. Barrett looked to provide depth at the safety position.

A little good news:

Nose tackle Jamal Williams has passed his physical and is officially off the PUP list. Kyle will update later on whether he participated in camp.

KDVR Fox31′s Josina Anderson tweeted that Knowshon Moreno walked by her smiling on his way to work out. She followed that up with a tweet stating the D.J. Williams was heading in the same direction.

A little good news for Broncos fans.

Other notes:

The Broncos have signed two receivers Britt Davis and Patrick Carter. The team waved wide receiver Patrick Honeycutt. Davis spent last season on the New York Jets practice squad, while Carter was an undrafted free agent in 2008, picked up by the Baltimore Ravens and spent 2009 on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad. Carter becomes the second former Seahawks the Broncos have signed this week.

    With the moves that Ian has listed, that leaves 79 on the active roster. The question is where the 80th man will come. RB, LB or who the hell knows? Westbrook? Haynesworth? Plaxico Burress? OJ? (I'm kidding!)

    Was hoping it was Aaron Schobel, but I think that the move were taking place there would have been a whisper about it by now.

    Good man, but I'm not sure we can afford him. “Kube” probably has the first shot at him.

    One potential landing spot for free agent Aaron Schobel was confirmed Thursday when Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said his team is interested in signing the former Bills defensive end/linebacker.

    Schobel, who played collegiately at TCU and lives in the Houston area, was waived by the Bills on Wednesday after oscillating on retirement this offseason. He is second in Bills club history with 78 sacks.

    Schobel's pass-rush abilities hold plenty of interest for the Texans, who are trying to reach the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

    “(General manager) Rick (Smith) is talking with our coaches, and they’re evaluating things and trying to determine exactly what role a player like Aaron would fill,” McNair told the Houston Chronicle. “We all respect him.”
