Kyle Johnson’s return to the Broncos only lasted five days.
Tuesday, the team waived the veteran fullback, two days after he saw some fairly substantial work at fullback and on special teams in the 37-34 loss to the Chicago Bears. Johnson saw sizable action on the Broncos’ final three series after Andre Hall finally succumbed to the high ankle sprain he suffered on the Denver’s first play from scrimmage. When Hall left, Cecil Sapp moved to running back, placing Johnson back on the field at his customary position.
Concurrent with the waiving of Johnson, the Broncos re-signed offensive lineman Isaac Snell, whom the club had waived on Thanksgiving to make room for the five-year veteran fullback.
Snell first joined the team off the Titans’ practice squad on Oct. 10, but has yet to see game-time action.
