The Broncos on Wednesday signed fourth-year tackle D’Anthony Batiste to their practice squad. The spot became available when Tony Carter was moved to the 53-man active roster on Saturday.
Batiste has played in 12 games during his pro tenure, including eight outings this season with the Redskins.
The 6-foot-4, 314-pound tackle started the 2009 season with Washington and was inactive for the first four games before replacing Chris Samuels in the team’s game at Carolina during Week 5. He saw action in the team’s next seven contests before being waived on Dec. 15.
Batiste, a four-year letterman at Louisiana-Lafayette, entered the NFL in 2006 as a college free agent with Dallas. He has started four games on the pro circuit.
