ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos announced today that they have promoted safety, Josh Bush, from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster. The recent loss of Quinton Carter, who was put on season-ending injured reserve, preempted the move.
Bush is a 5'11, 205lb safety in his third year out of Wake Forest University. He must have made quite the impression on the coaches, during the last four weeks on the practice squad.
Drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 draft by the New York Jets, Bush has 35 career games. His career totals include 10 tackles (7 solo) and one forced fumble. He's also amassed 19 tackles on special teams.
The Broncos also signed rookie offensive lineman, Jon Halapio, to the practice squad. The former Florida Gator was a sixth round pick of the New England Patriots in last May's draft. At 6'3, 320lbs, he will serve as a nice developmental prospect for the Broncos.
Plus, it doesn't hurt to add a former Bill Belichick insider. Even though Halapio was only with the Patriots through the preseason, before he was waived.
