The Broncos continue to keep secret their final roster moves. One move won’t be final until tomorrow.
Linebacker Shane Ray will be placed on injured reserve after Sunday at 4:00 p.m. ET, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Ray injured his wrist early in training camp. The Broncos plan to bring him back later in the season, a device that each team can use for two players per year.
To be eligible for IR-and-return, Ray must be on the initial 53-man roster. He can be moved to injured reserve after 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.
With DeMarcus Ware retired, the Broncos had been counting on Ray to step up in a major way this season. Ray had eight sacks last season.
