Ty Warren heads to injured reserve


The Broncos were hoping to keep injured defensive tackle Ty Warren’s roster spot open until they absolutely needed it.

With all the injuries on the squad, they needed the spot much sooner than expected.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports Warren is headed to injured reserve.  The team will promote running back Jeremiah Johnson from the practice squad, which is a clear sign Knowshon Moreno isn’t expected to be ready for Sunday’s game.  Willis McGahee will carry the load for Denver.

Warren, meanwhile, has missed two straight NFL seasons.  The Broncos gave him $4 million guaranteed, which was their biggest free agent signing of the offseason.

McGahee was one of the players we touted during our weekly Friday spot on Versus.

    The first two responses stole my thunder!

    I’m sure they’ll still find a way to blame this on McDaniels.

    The Broncos ought to trade all of McDaniels’ personnel picks to Seattle for the first rounder they’ll undoubtedly earn this year.

    This should be no surprise to any N.E. Patriots people. Tye Warren was a beast….for one year. Other than that one year he varied between really good to average to injured and out again.

    BB knew the history, knew the player, read the players mentality (football was no longer the most important thing anymore) and cut him. He was right to cut him….he knew where Tye was headed. Denver was really really foolish to give him all the guaranteed money.

    All the Patriots fans who thought they knew better than BB, please take note. Hoodie knows.

    Looks like KC dodged a bullet on this guy. He’s done.

    “stupid is as stupid does”…

    Must like giving money away…

    Perhaps there’s a problem with personnel decisions that preceded McDaniels. Because someone hired him and let him do what he did to decimate that team. And then guaranteed Warren $4M. Too bad owners can’t be fired.

    Belicheck dropped him for a reason. First Jarvis Green now Warren. When will people learn?

    It baffles me that so many people gloat over another teams injuries.
    Yeah we beat the Broncs. Am I glad their players were hurt…NO.

    Guys need to lighten up.

    He was still in the league?

  15. descendency says: Sep 17, 2011 5:03 PM

    Didn’t a similar thing happen to Jarvis Green?

    Don’t pick up people the Patriots release.

    I’m only a Pats fan an I could have told ya this was gonna happen Denver, this dude gets hurt shaving

    Belichick didn’t think football was important enough to Warren and that’s why he was cut. He had a $250,000 offseason workout bonus and he decided to pursue his degree instead. It’s great that Warren values education. But Belichick believed he should have placed a higher value on football after the Pats wrote such a big check to the guy and he got hurt. For Belichick, it was just time to move on. It’s no big deal and it’s doubtful Belichick could’ve predicted that Warren would be on IR for all of 2012.
