Just two weeks after being promoted from the practice squad to the active roster, rookie safety Duke Ihenacho has been waived, the Broncos announced on Tuesday.
On Monday, suspended linebacker D.J. Williams was cleared to return to the team and the Broncos got a roster exemption, meaning the Broncos would not have to make a corresponding roster move until after their Week 11 match-up against San Diego. The team decided to make a move now, however, with their seventh transaction of the season involving Ihenacho.
An undrafted rookie out of San Jose State, Ihenacho (6-foot, 213 pounds) played in two games this season, recording one special teams tackle. The Broncos may choose to sign him back to the practice squad (for the third time this season) if he clears waivers.
Tough break for Ihenacho, who seems to have been a good sport throughout all of the promoting and demoting this season.
