Oct 7th, 2014 - According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, The Denver Broncos brought in a few free agent running backs today for workouts, including Mikel Leshoure and LaRod Stephens-Howling. Both left without signing a contract with the team. The Broncos are not expected to make any moves in lieu of the groin injury suffered by Montee Ball on Sunday.

Although the decision to workout some veteran running backs, following Ball's injury, may have indicated a preemptive move, it is more likely that the team was merely updating their emergency list, in case they suffer another injury at the position. Rookie Kapri Bibbs is a more likely option in the event of an injury, than a street free agent.

In three seasons with the Detroit Lions, LeShoure, 24, a former second-round draft pick, rushed for 807 yards and nine touchdowns with the team who drafted him.

Stephens-Howling spent his first four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, after being drafted in the seventh round in 2009. He has 188 carries for 670 yards and five touchdowns in his NFL career.

Kapri Bibbs signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent following the draft. During his single season with Colorado State, Bibbs ran for 1,741 yards on 281 attempts, with 31 touchdowns. During the preseason, he ran for 84 yards on 21 carries to go along with 3 touchdown runs.
