Head Coach Josh McDaniels announced on Monday that rookie Darcel McBath will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a broken forearm against the Indianapolis Colts.
With McBath headed to IR, McDaniels also announced the team has signed safety Vernon Fox, who spent the 2008 season and 2009 training camp with the Broncos.
McBath was tied for the club lead in special teams tackles entering the Indianapolis game. He snared two interceptions in his rookie campaign.
McDaniels said Fox, who saw time in 10 games for the Broncos last season, will have an opportunity to fill in for McBath “right away” on special teams because of his familiarity with special teams coordinator Mike Priefer’s system during the preseason.
