The Broncos just claimed running back Justin Forsett off waivers on Tuesday, but they’re not wasting any time getting him involved in the offense.
Forsett practiced today and coach Gary Kubiak says he will play on Sunday against the Titans. Kubiak said he sees Forsett splitting carries with starting running back Devontae Booker. Kubiak said Forsett, who previously played for him in Baltimore, showed at his first practice that he still remembers the offense.
“Picking up guys who can come in, get in the huddle today, run plays and pick up blitzes and all that, that usually doesn’t happen. So that’s a good thing for us,” Kubiak said.
Forsett, who is now on his seventh NFL team, said he doesn’t think he’ll have any problem being ready right away because he has always approached his career that way.
“I’m here to play and contribute so when my number’s called I’ll be ready,” Forsett said. “You never know when your opportunity’s going to come but you can control how prepared you are when you get that opportunity.”
The Broncos think Forsett is already prepared and will make a difference for the remainder of the season.
