Gold to IR, Turner signed, Williams waived

The Denver Broncos Tuesday placed linebacker Ian Gold on the reserve/injured list, and signed cornerback Scott Turner, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced. In addition, the club waived cornerback Brandon Williams from the practice squad.

Gold, 25, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Sunday's 17-14 win over Pittsburgh. In his fourth year out of Michigan, the starting linebacker was second on the team in tackles with 39 (34 solo) and intercepted two passes, one of which he returned 12 yards for a touchdown at Cincinnati (9/7). Turner, 5-10, 190 pounds, joins the Broncos after being waived by the Buffalo Bills on Aug. 31 following training camp. Originally selected in the seventh round of the 1995 NFL Draft (226th overall) by Washington, the eighth-year cornerback spent three seasons with the Redskins (1995-97) and four with San Diego (1998-2001). He was out of football in 2002. Turner, in 92 career games, has made 91 tackles (71 solo), five interceptions for 91 yards with eight passes defensed and has scored three career touchdowns. A four-year letterwinner at Illinois, he started every game at cornerback as a senior, recording two interceptions, and was named the Special Teams Player of the Year. Eric Scott Turner was born Feb. 26, 1972 in Richardson, Texas.
