With the playoffs approaching and the chances to supplement rosters dwindling, the Denver Broncos have gone in search of additional help along the offensive line.

According to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, the Broncos are signing guard Robert Myers off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.

Myers will take the roster spot of defensive back Shaun Prater, who was waived on Tuesday.

Myers was a fifth-round pick of the Ravens back in May. He was released by Baltimore at the end of training camp and was signed to the Ravens practice squad after spending a week with the Indianapolis Colts.

Teams frequently raid the practice squads of others late in the season to add players to their rosters. It allows teams to add players to their rosters to evaluate for the final weeks of the season and get a head start on potential futures contracts heading into the offseason.
