Oct 8th, 2014 - Per Troy Renck (Denver Post), the Denver Broncos have signed Jeremy Stewart (5'11.215lbs) to their practice squad early Monday morning. Stewart signing is a cautionary one in case there are further injuries at the running back position. A preemptive move.

However, in injured starter, Montee Ball's, absence, if the team chooses to call up a practice squad running back, it'll likely be Kapri Bibbs, an undrafted rookie out of Colorado State. He's been with the Broncos all year.

Stewart went undrafted out of Stanford in the 2012 NFL draft, playing in 17 games with the Oakland Raiders, after originally signing with the Philadelphia Eagles. He gained 103 yards on 27 carries with 1 touchdown, to go with 68 yards on 10 receptions.

Stewart spent 5 seasons at Stanford, totalling 920 yards on 209 carries for 14 touchdowns. He caught 18 passes for 123 yards, to go along with another touchdown. Stewart fills the spot vacated by recently released offensive lineman, Ryan Miller.
