On Monday, the Broncos placed guard Chris Kuper on injured reserve, as the team captain broke his leg in Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
In his roster spot, the team signed a familiar face — offensive lineman Ryan Harris, who played in 46 games for the Broncos from 2007 to 2010.
The fifth-year player earned All-Pro honors from Sports Illustrated (Peter King) in 2008.
He started 10 games for the Broncos last season, but hasn’t played in 2011 after suffering an injury during training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles.
In addition, the Broncos signed defensive tackle Jeremy Jarmon, defensive end Cyril Obiozor and cornerback Ramzee Robinson to future contracts.
